Is this a rosé or is this a red? We can debate that later, but for now, the Anonimo is a light red that is best drank young while it is fresh and vibrant, and it even does well with a nice, fresh chill on it. Aromatics of raspberries and roses on the nose, leading into the palate exposing ripe red fruit and cloves.
The owner is Alberto Rigon, a quality artisan wine enthusiast who decided to believe in his own territory creating Matervi, a young reality situated in the hills of Fara Vicentino at the scope of the Altopiano of Asiago near Vicenza. Alberto runs three hectares of vineyards where he mainly cultivates grapes of Vespaiola and other vines without using pesticides, as it would inevitably cause the vines and the soil harm. In the winery, no stabilization or clarification is used and the fermentation happens spontaneously thanks to the yeasts naturally present in the grapes. With “underground wines“ we are referring to the production of wine with respect for the territory and the figure of the productor, defined a Saint Artisan in every sense of the word.
