FRIMAIO VENDEMMIA TARDIVA
FRIMAIO "VENDEMMIA TARDIVA"
The Frimaio Vendemmia Tardiva is a sweet white wine produced only in the best vintage by a grapes muscato. The grapes must have submitted to gradual withering and attack from noble Botrytis on the same vite. Why this name, so reminiscent of a calendar month of the French revolutionary era? The idea to give such name to this wine derives from a double motivation: from one side the awareness to create a particular and different product," revolutionary" inside our business context, justly centered on the Barbaresco; from the other side because the day when we picked up such dry grapes was November 21 st 2001 that it exactly corresponded to the" primidì" (first day) of the revolutionary month of Frimaio. A special feature of this product, in addition to low yield grape / wine (15Hl/ha), the fact that each label is different from another since all are decorated with abstract designs executed by Enrico Dellapiana.
