Marco Antonelli farms 4 hectares of old Cesanese vines (and a hectare of olives). From Slow Wine: “Marco and his wife Bianca returned to the vineyards in 2007, strongly convinced that the love and passion of the old winemakers shouldn’t end with their generation: in this way they have built something important for the future. The vines are in two locations, one around the house with rows of Cesanese and Malvasia, the second close by, at about 400 meters in altitude. Marco says this vineyard is anarchic because the red and white grapes grow together in a disorganized manner, maintained this way because they represent a piece of local history."

The vines are organic (certified), fermentations are spontaneous; the Fresca (that’s “Fresh”, soda fans), macerates for just a week, and spends 6 months on the lees in stainless steel before bottling. It lives up to the name: fresh, juicy and bright, stony from volcanic soils, perfect for the coming season when you might like a lightly chilled red that has some depth. Already a total steal, get 10% off when you buy a case!
