Edi Kante, Dosaggio Zero Spumante NVRegular price $45.00 Save $-45.00
Variety: Chardonnay and Malvasia
Edi Kante is a second generation winemaker coming from southeastern Friuli. This is a region that no one would call Italian, as it's the crossroads of Italian, Slovenian, and Croatian culture. There’s really nowhere else making wine like this, as the microclimate here included the Alps, the Adriatic Sea, and the hills of Collio. When Edi took over the domain, it was he who began bottling the wines by variety. An enormous proponent of the orange wine movement, the Kante wines can all be aged. He has an underground three story cellar where all this happens, ideal for the amount of cellaring he does. The wines are a true homage to the limestone soils of Friuli, his passion, and represent his personality.
‘Dosaggio Zero’ simply means no dosage, though it just means the wine has been made into a perfectly dry style with no added sugar. The fruit comes from a site over 800 feet in altitude and the wine is made in the Champagne method. The juice is aged for twelve months in old oak and aged a year on its lees to give added richness and texture.
