Ombra, (Shade) represents the alternate interpretation of the vinification of the Sangiovese grape. The result was the creation of our “OMBRA”: freshness, pleasure, gaiety, sociability, intriguing. From the Lombard-Veneto tradition, the land of our origin, the term “OMBRA” has its roots in ancient times. In Venice, during the sixteenth and eighteenth-century, wine merchants were called “bacari” whose term in the singular “bacaro” referred to Bacchus, the god of wine, grape harvest and ecstatic pleasure. The bacari to not overheat the wine and other products, were positioned in the most shaded and cool areas of the city; hence the term “shadow of wine”; nothing but a thirst-quenching glass of wine, perhaps drunk in company.
Here is OMBRA
To guarantee the fragrance of the aromas, the grapes are picked at night and thermally conditioned with dry ice. We immediately proceed to a soft pressing of the bunch. The must obtained is naturally decanted for 2 days. The fermentation takes place with indigenous yeasts at a temperature not higher than 18 ° C. After some decants, in order to obtain the natural clarity of OMBRA, bottling is carried out, with scrupulous respect for specific qualities.
