About Radici e Filari ViV Metodo Ancestrale

Radici e Filari ViV Metodo Ancestrale is creamy with a slight nuttiness. Notes of citrus, orange blossom, lemon, and ginger with a moussy frizzante. Very light press to extract the indigenous yeasts present on the grapes and subsequent fermentation in steel tanks. After the first spontaneous fermentation, the wine rests on its lees till the first lunar cycle is complete. In October the wine is bottled by hand with a crown cap so that the wine can naturally ferment a second time in the bottle and, thanks to the sugars and yeast present in the bottle, the “metodo ancestrale” cycle comes to an end without adding or subtracting anything before bottling. This pet nat is not filtered nor clarified and has no addition of sulfites before bottling. CO2 is the natural preservative and it is the byproduct of the fermentation in bottle. Each bottle is unique and follows its own evolution.

About Radici e Filari 

Radici e Filari translates to “Roots and Rows”.

The estate is located in the Province of Cuneo (La Morra) Piemonte. There, they have 8.5ha of land and another 2.5ha in Asti. The estate is run by Emanuele Buganza, who took over from his father, Renato, who originally founded the estate in 1978. While the land has always been farmed organically, when Emanuele took over, they transitioned to biodynamic farming. His philosophy on biodynamic farming is that it is a gift we made to ourselves to seek harmony with nature. In the vineyard, in addition to the usual soil treatments/preparations that accompany biodynamic farming, Emanuele is also big on vine pruning and leaf removal to promote airflow and reduce disease.

Grapes are biodynamically farmed and hand-harvested.
