Marta Valpiani 2018 "Delyus" Forlì Bianco, Emilia-Romagna, Italy

In 1998, Elisa Mazzavillani and her mother, Marta Valpiani took over 12 HA of vineyards in Romagna, overhauling the land by hand to restore it to a more natural state of agriculture. Although they are not certified, Elisa focuses on sustainable practices in the winery (lower water and electricity usage; lighter glass bottles for a lower carbon footprint), and is integrating more biodynamic approaches into the vineyards with each vintage. An accomplished artist, Elisa creates the  labels herself, meant to reflect the beautiful flora and fauna found in their vineyards. 

Winemaker: Elisa Mazzavillani 

Farming: Biodynamic

Variety: 100% Albana 

Terroir / Soil: 9 year old vines, golden sandstone on the highest part of the vineyard and medium-textured clay with limestone

Vinification: Fermentation with indigenous yeasts, in small stainless tubs without temperature control, no malolactic fermentation

Aging: 6 months in cement, 3 months in bottle

Tasting notes: A zesty, mineral-dense white wine from the gastronomic heart of Italy, Emilia-Romagna. Medium bodied, with racy citrus notes of yuzu and meyer lemon, rounded by notes of honeysuckle and green guava, with a flinty finish of wet stone and beeswax. Easy drinking, but complex enough to pair against a creamy asparagus pasta or a delicate ceviche.
