a wine made just like it used to be
Oncia Rossa is a wine that comes from pure Cesanese di Affile grapes, grown on soil rich in skeleton: harvested by hand and with obsessive care and attention, the bunches are vinified in a completely natural way, so as not to ruin everything what good has been done in the vineyard.
For this reason, the fermentation is spontaneous and the rest on the skins lasts for at least 8 days, in order to allow the Cesanese grapes to release all their properties.
The wine then matures in second passage tonneaux for 10 months and subsequently rests in the bottle for at least another 3 months.
Red and black fruits such as cherries and blueberries, spicy and balsamic hints of pepper and mint
Silky, fresh and agile, highly drinkable
