Distributor Notes: "From estate parcels scattered about the steep hills of the Monferrato zone of Asti around the Verruàs' home village of Scurzolengo. The family farms organically, tending and harvesting the vines entirely by hand.
The grapes are destemmed with berries kept whole and gently pressed without breaking the skins, just enough to kick off a native-yeast fermentation in vat. Fermentations go long in this cold cellar, as do macerations, which are up to 2 months. This Vino Rosso blend is aged in a mix of cement, fiberglass and Slavonian oak for about a year before bottling without filtration. Zero sulfur.
The label with '68' adorning a yellow fedora perched on two heads honors Nadia Verruà's uncle Sisto (root is sei or "six") and her dad Ottavio (root is otto or "eight"), designed like the other Tavijn labels by family friend/artist Gianluca Cannizzo."
