About Sfera Wines

Sfera is at once terroir-driven, but also an interesting take on liters, and bottling wine in general. As Sfera says on their quirky site: Cosmic Verve in a Grounded Italian Liter…From the Alps to the Mediterranean. Sfera collaborates with multiple small certified organic farmers to bottle liters in limited runs and is keen to give the producer credit by clearly putting the winery’s name and providence on the back label. So, Sfera Litro Rosso bottled with Barbera grapes from Monferrato could become Sfera Litro Rosso with Nero d’Avola from Noto from a specific certified organic producer. The front label of Sfera Rosso / Rosato / Macerato / Bianco all stays the same, but the back label with the producer and providence change. What doesn’t change is that the wines are naturally made, and fall into certain guidelines that lab tested before and after bottling. These are not only a great introduction to natural wines, they are also a great introduction to Italian grape varieties and growing areas.

About Uva Rara

Uva Rara is a red-wine grape variety of southern Lombardy, in the northwest of Italy. It is best known as a variety used in the red wines of the Oltrepo Pavese DOC, where it is a dominant part of both the standard rosso wines and also the intriguingly titled Sangue di Giuda (Judas’ Blood). It is also used as a minor blending component in Croatina-based sparkling Oltrepo Pavese Bonarda Frizzante. Uva Rara’s most common blending partners in Lombardy are Barbera and Croatina.

About Croatina

Croatina is a red wine grape variety found in several areas of central northern Italy, namely eastern Piedmont, southern Lombardy, and western Emilia-Romagna. It is sometimes known by its synonym Bonarda, a nickname it shares with Uva Rara and Bonarda Piedmontese, a near-extinct aromatic variety from the hills of Piedmont. Croatina, as the name implies, originated in Croatia, most likely in the coastal Primorska Hrvatska region, which also gave the world both Primitivo and its American version, Zinfandel. The overland journey from Croatia (through Slovenia) to northern Italy is relatively short, although it is equally possible that the vines were originally brought across the Adriatic Sea, arriving first in Venice or Ravenna.
