“Stiolorosso” is 100% Sorbara planted in 1960 at a friend’s biodynamic farm called Casalpriore, located in Stiolo di San Martino in Reggio Emilia, south of Terrevive’s home commune of Modena. Gianluca employs a traditional local style of vinification: three days of punching down, and that’s it. This keeps the wine lively and prevents over-extraction, though plenty of deep color is produced from such a brief period of pigeage. “Stiolorosso” offers a typically expressive nose of earthy black cherries, with a trace of well-gauged volatility and a subtle salty funk, and its palate is both juicy and tense, with those cherry flavors echoing. It is elegant on entry, with well-measured earth on the palate and a caressing sense of acidity.
