Cabernet Sauvignon IGT Rosso di Terra di Rovo is a 100% natural wine produced from a single-variety organic grapes without ageing in barrique: in fact, during the phases of processing and bottling, we do not add any kind of artificial yeast or sulphites in order to leave the wine free to express itself at better.

At Terra di Rovo we collect the grapes exclusively by hand, deposit them in small boxes and transport them to the cellar within a very short time from the harvest, in order to preserve the freshness of each individual bunch. We immediately process the grapes with the press and leave them to ferment for a few days.

Fermentation in steel containers takes place in a totally natural way, so as not to change the original aroma and body of the wine in any way. Once the fermentation process is complete, we pour the wine to separate it from the coarse lees. The wine stabilizes in the cold, also from the tartaric point of view.

In full respect of the ancient traditions, we carry out every phase of processing in the vineyard and in the cellar during the waning moon days. Once ready, we bottle our natural unfiltered wine and let it refine in bottle for several months before sharing it.
