Overlooking the Piave river exactly in Salgareda, there is Ombretta Agricola where the young winemaker Alex della Vecchia works, a disciple and heir of the legendary Ernesto Cattel founder and soul, unfortunately disappeared too soon, of Costadilà.
Here too they follow organic agricultural techniques, with purely manual interventions of a viticulture respectful of the territory and the environment, and they work in the cellar according to tradition, with the only help of the indigenous yeasts of their own grapes, without addition of sulphites, filtrations or clarifications.
The gem is the splendid Pet Nat Ombretta Bianco Mosso, exciting from the first to the last sip, but the rosé version is no less! Super interesting the Chardonnay macerated on the skins for a month.
At the same time, the good Alex also carries on the small niche production that boasts only a label of his own family business. This is Pedecastello, a Pet Nat obtained from old Pinot Noir vineyards that give us a wine with super sapidity and freshness.
In short, if summer is coming, do not be unprepared...these wines will surely be for you!!!
