Orsi San Vito - Posca Rossa NV (2019)
This product is currently sold out.
There are few wines in the world that are wholly unique - but this is one of them. Federico Orsi is one of the most inspiration winemakers that we have the pleasure of working with, and his Posca Rossa is the result of innovation and joy.
It's a non-vintage solera blend of primarily Barbera, with Negretto and Cabernet Sauvignon blended in. The wines of the current vintage are vinified with short and long skin macerations in oak, cement, stainless steel and amphoras. Though it sounds careless, it's a work of tremendous skill and the wine is truly alive, changing with every addition to the tank. The solera has been kept since he started the Posca series in 2008, and as always is an absolute pleasure to drink.

Federico Orsi was born in Bologna, but grew up in Brazil. After returning to Italy in his late teens to study business, he began working as a consultant while planning to earn his MBA. Though poised for the corporate life, the sale of a local Bolognese winery would forever change the course of his life.
