Al di la del Fiume Birichen 2020
Al di là del Fiume (beyond the river) is husband and wife Danila Mongardi & Gabriele Monte's wine label as part of a larger multifunctional biodynamic agricultural project just out side of Bologna, Emilia Romagna. This is pet-nat made from Grechetto Gentile from the highest hills on their property. Seven months maturation on lees prior to disgorgement. This is complicated wine that's wonderfully easy to drink. There's a tangible sense of a farmer's patience and respect for the ancient here that's hard to not find striking and impressive.
