Furlani Mae Son Rosato Frizzante is a natural wine made from Pinot Noir. The grapes are harvested by hand when they achieve ideal ripeness, typically in August. They macerate on the skins for a few hours, then undergo spontaneous fermentation with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel vats. After a gentle pressing, the freshly fermented wine ages in steel vats until it is racked and bottled, where it undergoes a second fermentation on the lees. There is no chemical intervention at any stage of the winemaking process—unfined, unfiltered, no added SO2.

Producer profile

Furlani

Matteo Furlani, a fourth-generation winemaker, is the dedicated custodian of his family's vineyards above the alpine city of Trento in the Dolomites at over 700 meters. His approach to winemaking, honed not through formal study but through the knowledge passed down from his father and grandfather, emphasizes a deep connection to the land and a commitment to natural methods.

Matteo's vineyards, characterized by soils of surface clay over schist and broken granite (known locally as sasso dolomitico), are spread across several small parcels near the village of Povo, just above Trento. He employs the traditional 'Pergola Trentina' training system for the vines, ensuring optimal ventilation, drying, and sun exposure. While local grape varieties are his primary focus, Matteo cultivates a small amount of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, which he uses in his "Metodo Interrotto" sparkling wines.

Matteo's winemaking process is distinctly natural and minimalistic. Fermentation occurs in cement tanks or small glass demijohns without temperature control, using only native yeasts, and without adding sulfur. A unique aspect of his process involves clarifying the wines by racking them into demijohns and placing them outside in the snow during winter. This natural settling process in the cold gives the wines' clarity and purity. The "Metodo Interrotto," or Interrupted Method, refers to his unique take on the traditional Champagne method, involving bottle re-fermentation but with an unfinished twist.

Matteo Furlani's approach is not just a winemaking style but a reflection of his respect for the environment and commitment to authentic, natural winemaking. His wines, a result of this careful and thoughtful process, are a true expression of the unique terroir of the Dolomites.
