Valli Unite, Ottavio Rube Bianco 2021

Get to know: Valli Unite, Ottavio Rube Bianco 

Tasting Note

Fun organic white. This has lots of apple, pear and lemon fruit, with a little floral chamomile hint alongside a light funkiness and cider-like note. On the palate it is vibrant with a bit of a saline, mineral note and a creamy mouthfeel. Crisp acidity on the finish makes this very refreshing.

Try this with shellfish dishes.

Producer Info

The co-operative was born over thirty years ago. At a time in which increasing numbers of people had moved to the cities and to factory work, three young men from local farming families got together to discuss the future of farming in this area. They were deeply attached to the work and to their own land, but they wanted to find new ways of using traditional methods. To begin with they merged their vineyards and built stalls for farm animals so they could use organic manure to fertilise their fields and vines. The old ways were combined with a very modern belief in organic farming as the way of the future, as part of the wider project known as ‘contraction’, involving reducing the human impact on the natural environment. Viticulture is non-invasive. Old-fashioned sickles are used to hoe the weeds, the vines are fertilised with manures from their cattle as well as green fertilisers composed of clover and weeds. Cement vats are used to ferment the wines which are then transferred to old barrels to soften and mature.
