Denavolo is a project from Guilio Armani of La Stoppa. Catavela is their orange entry offering full of citrus & orchard fruits. Like Dinavolino, this also has super moreish qualities… extremely perfumed & herbs a plenty - if you could eat the perfume department in Liberty…
From vines averaging 12 years old and planted to stony chalk soils at the very top of the hill (650m) called Campo Rotonde. The grapes are hand-harvested in early September, undergo intensive vineyard sorting, de-stemming and half of the harvest spends five days on the skins while the other half is directly pressed. Spontaneous fermentation takes place in stainless steel and lasts 15 days without temperature control. The wine spends approximately eight months on lees without stirring.
