Grape Harvest 2014
We finally arrived in November and the first taste of the wines of the Grape Harvest 2014 is on the shelves. The Novello(new wine), obtained by a fermentation method used in France for the production of a wine called Beaujolais nouveau, until a few years ago was little known. To understand how is it possible to drink a red wine after a so short period, without going through the slow maturation and aging, we must describe the technique, carbonic maceration, with which it is produced: the grape bunches are not de-stemmed and crushed and are placed at the internal of a steel container saturated with carbon dioxide and left to ferment for a period ranging from several hours to a few days. In this particular environment, in the absence of oxygen, the grapes initiate an intracellular fermentation that produces multiple effects: lowers the acidity, enhances the fruity aromatic components, increases the content of glycerin. Once removed from the container, the grapes are then conveyed to a normal alcoholic fermentation. The resulting wine has a purple color, fruity scents with marked notes of berries, soft and harmonious taste. The low content of tannins and low acidity, make it unsuitable for the preservation and it should be consumed as soon as possible to fully enjoy its features.
The italian history of Novello started in 1989 as a result of DM 06/10/1989, and is characterized by varying degrees of success, after a growing success between the customers(but not with reviewers), and after the halcyon days when its consumption was fashionable, now it is experiencing a period of decline. We recommend you to try it, without expecting the structure and the complexity of an aged wine, but enjoying its intense aromas and try it with autumn dishes(see post) with which it combines very well!!!
