"This tiny property acts as the purest, most rudimentary "laboratory" for Danilo Marcucci's natural wine designs. Here no compromise is taken. Given the exceedingly small scale of the property, 4 rows of vines that total less than 1 hectare, Danilo and his friend Riccardo can do things on a different wavelength ... no time frames, no yielding. The beauty of Ceppaiolo is that it displays the classic "Contrast Italiano" with clarity ... plain and simple, Ceppaiolo is a dump. Nothing more then a run down cement farm house that lies mostly in disrepair with bombed out old Fiats and farm equipment scattered around the property. There's no electricity, no bathroom. [...]Winemaking is beyond rudimentary ... no pumping, nothing more then 1 old barrel, a couple resin tanks, a cement vat and some demijohns. Here the 'terroir' is not the soil or the altitude but the old vine material and the vision of Danilo and Riccardo, Basta.
Field blend of all grapes grown on the property. Spontaneous fermentation, aged in cement. Frozen must from original grapes added before bottling in the Spring. Re-fermentation in bottle. No added sulfur and no filtering or fining."- SelectioNaturel
