Semplicemente Vino Bianco “Bellotti”, Cascina degli Ulivi, Piemonte, Italy 2014

In addition to grape growing, this estate also produces fruits, vegetables and cereals, and keeps a variety of farm animals. This biodiversity is an essential factor in biodynamic farming, which treats farms as self-contained, self-sufficient entities requiring little or no inputs from the outside. Stefano Bellotti began as an eighteen year old in 1977, reclaiming the family farm where there was less than 1 hectare of vineyard in existing use. The wines of Degli Ulivi are pure and natural, made without manipulations- the winemakers believe that the art of winemaking is to accompany the wine through its natural transformation process.

This wine is medium-yellow in colour; the nose initially suggesting a rich butter cake, with nut and citrus oils. Later, once the wine has opened up, you see an amazing floral component, almost lily-like, with dry spice, quince and walnuts.

The wine has a very good finish with an interesting bitter walnut and churned butter aftertaste..
