Ivag is a delicate, fruity wine, ready and easy to drink. Straw yellow, the nose expresses floral notes that blend with clear mineral hints. In the mouth it is textured, relaxed, elegant, characterized by excellent acidity and a particularly fragrant finish. Also excellent as an aperitif, it is ideal to drink chilled to accompany vegetarian dishes, soups and velvety. Try it with a fresh gazpacho.
Drinking and storing
There is nothing I dislike more than a wine with "spritz" (probably from second fermentation in bottle)... except this one. Yes, it had the mildest touch of sparkling tingling, but that tingling was rather good, and the deep flavours of apricots and peached (plus a touch of truffles), and the mouthwatering acidity came together in a wonderful combination. It is a "natural wine" and people must be aware that these wines are "different," but this difference is what makes it rather delicious.
Exceptional natural white.
This is a very fine natural white, full of surprises: Gavi but not Gavi. Great complexity and length on the palate. Highly recommended!
De la Nature....
.... de la nature vivante, de la nature exultante, vibrante. On boit et on a l'impression d'être dans les vignes, de sentir le vent, de boire tout un petit monde, plein d'énergie, de soleil, de vie.... magique!
Todos los vinos de esa bodega tienen un caracter único y muy especial. Los precios reflejan como están elaborados cuidadosamente, y no me dejan tomarlos a diário cómo me apetece!
Amplitude et minéralité
Un beau vin nature. notes mielées, ample, du gras en bouche, et une fraîcheur persistante. Très aromatique. Coup de coeur garanti.
Cascina degli Ulivi
The Cascina degli Ulivi is a farm and garden. Stefano Bellotti doesn't just produce wine, he also rears livestock, produces cheeses, grows cereal crops, fruits and vegetables. It is one of the best examples of what the biodynamic philosophy stands for: the interrelation between different elements and human beings, that live harmoniously and complementing each other. As Bellotti explains, when the vines are cultivated by natural means they manage to penetrate deep into the soils...
