MORE ABOUT THE WINE - Giovanni Cenci is a 5th generation winemaker in the Central Italian region of Umbria. His style of winemaking only requires healthy little berries and very, very clean equipment. His vineyard has always been organic, and he does most of the harvesting at night, so headlamps are a vital harvesting tool. He uses extremely old oak and between vintages completely takes apart the barrels to clean and reassemble them himself. He’s also a popular guy in the Umbria Slow Wine movement.
