NOTES BY OUR SOMMELIERS
👁 a deep ruby red;
👃🏻 on the nose it expresses a floral bouquet (macerated flowers), fruity (red and black fruits) with chalky mineral memories
👄 on the palate it is a full-bodied, fresh, harmonious wine with a good persistence.
Botticino is a very persistent wine with a high alcohol content. It lends itself well to dishes with succulence, persistence and taste-olfactory intensity, such as robust first courses, grilled meats or roasts. We recommend it with beef tagliata with juniper.
WINE-MAKING AND REFINEMENT
A wine obtained from certified organic viticulture, from a skilful blend of Barbera, Sangiovese, Marzemino and Slave Gentile grapes. The vineyards are located about 350 metres above sea level, near the Botticino marble quarries, where the soil is marly and calcareous. Colle degli Ulivi is the result of an exclusively manual harvest during the first weeks of October. The grapes are destemmed and crushed, fermented and then aged for 20 months in large cement barrels to maintain freshness. A red wine that is not filtered, thus maintaining its natural characteristics.

The winery is located in Botticino. A small DOC area bordering Brescia and famous throughout the world for its marble, also used for the construction of the White House and the Altare della Patria in Rome. The name Botticino is given to the wine produced in the 'Valverde', a valley that is home to a number of clusters of houses that, joined together, form the village of Botticino. The favourable exposure of the land, sunny and protected by the chain, and the clayey-calcareous nature of the soils, located on the slopes of the steep hills east of Brescia, create an ideal environment for the production of red wines with typicality and body, which reach perfection with ageing. The rocky Brescian hills, comprising the municipalities of Botticino, Brescia and Rezzato, boast a very ancient winegrowing tradition, witnessed by the discovery of some fossil remains of vitis silvestris, ancestor of vitis vinifera sativa, dating back as far as five thousand years before Christ.
The Noventa winery is located in the municipality of Botticino, in the province of Brescia. The vineyards extend over some ten hectares in the foothills of the Brescian Pre-Alps near the famous Botticino marble quarries and are south-south-east facing and enjoy sunshine throughout the day. The winery's history dates back to the end of the 19th century, when Pierangelo's great-grandparents cultivated vineyards on the difficult slopes at the foot of the Pre-Alps, and during the 1970s Pierangelo himself decided to carry on the family tradition, going against the trend of farmers in that difficult area, who tended to abandon the fields to devote themselves to more profitable activities; Pierangelo implemented a recovery activity of abandoned vineyards in the Botticino area and dedicated himself to the new rebirth of that Lombardy wine. In 2011 came the turning point, when with satisfaction the winery was enrolled in the register of organic operators of the Lombardy Region, giving rise to the production of even more genuine wines, sons of their territory.
