From one of the most forward thinking minds in Italian natural wines comes this high-toned and mineral-driven bubbly rosé. Danilo Marcucci makes some of the most charmingly rustic and honest natural wines in all of Italy, and his Conestabile line comes exclusively from fruit grown on his historic estate. We speak often about terroir expression, but we've never seen a winegrower as hyper focused as Danilo. He trains each vine differently, based on his impression of its potential to express not just ripeness but minerality. The results are wines like this, ones based on freshness and drinkability, that are unrivaled on the table.
