VARIETIES: 50% Pignoletto , 50% Malvasia
FARMING: Organic, Biodynamic
WINEMAKING: Spontaneous fermentation and aging in concrete tanks. A two and a half month maceration for the Malvasia and a short maceration on the Pignoletto. Aged six months on the lees. A chilled grape must from the same year is then added to the wine before bottling. Un-disgorged so the customer can leave on the lees as long as they choose.
FUN FACTS: Sui Lieviti means "on the lees". It is undisgorged and Federico recommends turning the bottle upside down and letting the lees incorporate into all of the wine in the bottle. The M&M stand for "macerated" and "Malvasia". Very little of this bottling is produced.
