il Cattivo Grenache 2020
"Maximum lip, minimal filtration, Il Cattivo produces great wine for naughty boys and girls who like to misbehave".
Handpicked Grenache was destemmed with approximately 20% whole bunches for wild open fermentation. Following 18 days skin contact the wine was basket pressed to old French hogsheads for 12 months maturation. The wine was bottled without fining nor filtration and is a riot of redcurrant, fennel, chicory and a smattering of savory spice seething with a fine dry tannin.
Winemakers: Anthony Catinari & Richard Bate
