Zanotto Rosso Col Fondo was created from a blend of hill-grown red grapes with notable acidity, and another decidedly full-bodied grape variety. The grapes are fermented together and left to macerate in stainless steel tanks for 7-10 days. The second fermentation takes place in the bottle where the lees are left to deposit.
“Whoever drinks one of my bottles should find in it the stories of the past, the scent that made me fall in love with it and that peculiar personality that distinguishes me because it’s witness of a particular territory. It wouldn’t have been enough to settle for any territory or entrust on modern methods of wine-making. It was necessary to do some research. Discover the right combination of grape, soil, technique, tradition and timings… It was more like being tailors than farmers, more selectors than producers. And this is what I became in the course of the years, a tailor that selects quality, taste and tradition.”
Zanotto Rosso Col Fondo has an inviting aroma: violets, small red fruit, strawberries and pepper. The tannins and acidity play up lively in this unusual and unexpected wine, both harmonious and fragrant. This wine is made to be drunk!! A fantastic dinner party wine!
