WE CHOSE IT BECAUSE
It is made from three indigenous grape varieties from central Italy and in a totally natural way
From Umbrian hillside soils cultivated with Sangiovese, Malvasia Nera and Ciliegiolo vines that go up to 45 years old comes “Zeroodibabo,” Marco Merli’s rosé.
Marco’s desire to innovate and experiment prompted him to produce this wine with two different harvest times: the first in early September, with the grapes less ripe and consequently more acidic; the second in mid-September, with the grapes at the right degree of ripeness.
The two combined masses age in the cellar for 14 months, and the wine is neither clarified nor filtered before bottling.
“Zerodibabo” succeeds in fully expressing the characteristics of the grape varieties that compose it.
On the nose, fruit and flowers are recognizable, especially morello cherry and violets.
The sip is juicy, just like a fruit, and flavorful.
At the table it pairs beautifully with first courses with vegetable or fish sauces, as well as many vegetable dishes, both cooked and raw. For an exceptional pairing, try it with a tomato-heavy pizza!
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 gives 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.
