Protecting the biodiversity of the territory has always been a priority for Fabrizio Iuli, who since 2013 has planted about one hectare of Slarina, a native Piedmontese variety in extinction. Fermented and aged in concrete tanks before resting in the bottle for 2 months, it is a light and fragrant wine, for daily drinking but with a pleasant tannic structure. Drum roll: here is La Rina! Like Fabrizio, we too have immediately believed in the potential of this variety, a wine that for intent and result is fully part of the Braja collection.
In the northernmost area of Monferrato is Montaldo Cerrina, a town with very few souls that has been living in the spotlight for some years thanks to the splendid work carried out by Fabrizio Iuli, winemaker, and his wife Summer Wolf - whose latest and visionary project is the establishment of a Steiner school where food and agriculture are at the center of training. Summer and Fabrizio from the first time welcomed us into their home as if we were family, giving us illuminating moments in the vineyard and moments of pure conviviality on the table Ah, those fresh tomatoes from the garden! Ah, the famous agnolotti of Fabrizio's mother! Iuli is a place, a mission and a state of mind that enters the heart. Since 1998 Fabrizio has been producing wine with a natural and sustainable approach. He started with Barbera, the undisputed queen of these hills, inaugurating the first harvest with Rossore, his most iconic wine. But the attention and passion for the indigenous Piedmontese varieties have pushed Fabrizio further and further, and as a convinced Rossista he now faces the world of white wines. In short Fabrizio, what's next?
