Ottonese (also known as Bombino) by Merumalia, on the nose recalls citrus fruit: it has a nice acidity on palate and a quite long persistence with a balanced sapidity. This autochthonous grape grows on a volcanic soil, respecting the nature and the environment. The vineyard are grown on the north side of volcanic, rocky soil (mineral rich) of Castelli Romani, respecting the nature and the environment. The OTTONESE grapes production has an upper limit of 8 tons per hectar (much less than permitted). Grapes are pressed very softly in inert environment. To limit the generation of sulphites, the fermentation initiated with selected yeast, is thermally controlled in inox containers. The wine is ageing in inox and in bottle.
