DESCRIZIONE DEL PRODOTTO
The Pinot Meunier grapes, a mutation of Pinot Noir that is not widespread in Italy, that give rise to “Rio Cami,” Aurelio and Emilio Del Bono’s all-natural Metodo Classico, grow in the hills of Franciacorta from the clay-limestone soils. The Casa Caterina vines during their lives know no chemicals whatsoever, except for very small doses of copper and sulfur when strictly necessary.
“Rio Cami” is vinified 90% in steel and 10% in oak barrels. Fermentation is spontaneous and lasts for 90 days, after which the wine is ready for its aging: 120 long months in which it evolves and develops all the personality that can be found on tasting. Aurelio and Emilio do not add sulfites and the sulfur levels themselves are negligible. “Rio Cami” expresses Franciacorta through Pinot Meunier in the most natural way possible.
The color is golden, characterized by a very fine mousse.
On the nose there are fragrances of pan brioche, dried fruit and aromatic Mediterranean herbs such as rosemary. The mineral notes are intense.
On the palate it is structured and elegant, able to fill the mouth and close with a savory finish.
At the table it will suit your most important and special occasions. It can accompany a fish hors d’oeuvre, enhancing it; it can be the king of dinner paired with a seafood risotto; you can also fully appreciate it with a board of cured meats and aged cheeses, to impress your guests right away with a bottle whose value you can only understand by tasting it.
INGREDIENTS AND BENEFITS
A glass of wine a day keeps the doctor away!
It is clear that wine is not harmful to our bodies, as a substance given to us by nature in the form of fruit from which man over the centuries has managed to obtain this heavenly beverage. We can guarantee that our winemakers work by following ancient methods, supported by the aid of contemporary technologies: this is why we feel confident in affirming that Italian wine, the real one, is a panacea for body and mind.
The presence of polyphenols in wine (to a lesser extent in white wines and in large quantities in reds, especially when aged) provides constant protection against cellular oxidation, the main culprit of aging and cellular deterioration.
Perhaps even more obvious and important, however, are the psychological benefits that a good glass of Italian wine can give you: the lightheartedness it brings to an evening with friends, the romance it helps to create in a couple’s dinner, the passion it is able to unleash in anyone lucky enough to taste its essences.
We receive your order, prepare it and ship it in 24/36 hours.
We are aware that excellent products need excellent packaging and at the same time we cannot risk damaging in any way the precious Italian culinary jewels: for this reason our warehouse is equipped with temperature and lighting ideal for food preservation and the most delicate ones (cheeses, cold cuts and craft beers) are stored inside cold rooms. During shipping, on the other hand, each product is protected with the packaging most appropriate to its characteristics.
Cheeses and cured meats, which despite being aged require special care, travel accompanied by a special slow-release gel ice inside isothermal bags: in this way freshness is preserved until the goods arrive at your home.
For our craft beers, which are unpasteurized and therefore more sensitive to high temperatures than normal, we use special isothermal bubble wrap, which can ensure that the accumulated cold is maintained for the shipping time while protecting the bottles from shocks.
To secure the precious bottles of Italian wine, we have equipped ourselves with special inflatable bags, designed solely for the purpose of immobilizing and protecting this product inside the box.
For jars containing a thousand Italian goodnesses, we use special protective bubble wrap liners.
