Riccardo Zanotto is not just a winemaker, but a person who thrives on the stories of the past, and the experiences of tasting the wine as you drink. He makes a conscious choice not to own his own vineyards in Veneto, but rather entrusts the vine growing to others who know best. His project is a multitude of sparkling wines from the Veneto region, white and red, classic and not, in natural ways that allow the grapes to shine and the drinker to enjoy.
While Rosso Col Fondo is an ancestral method sparkling red, it does undergo two fermentations, the first in the tank, and the second in the bottle. Here ”Col Fondo” means “the bottom,” but just means a lightly sparkling wine that’s been aged on its lees. Using mostly the Marzemino grape that brings acidity, and Cabernet Sauvignon, which brings structure, this juicy sparkling red aims to please.
