Aromatic, bright, and light colored in the glass. Aromas of red berries and rhubarb, crushed, and fresh alpine. Those same notes come across on the palate as well as a mouthwatering zest that gives the fruit an appealing lift. A super gulpable and chill-able crowd-pleaser of a juicy red.
Hand-harvested, destemmed, and crushed. 5-6 days maceration with frequent pump-overs and pressed off before fermentationis complete to limit tannin extraction. Aged in stainless steel.
Pavia is very much a family affair, with Agostino's two sons Guiseppe and Mauro now handling much of the cellar work and sales. But it is still Agostino who walks the vineyards during harvest, tasting the grapes, and deciding when to pick. They employ a sustainable farming philosophy that Mauro refers to as "buon senso" (common sense): all vineyard done manually, integrated pest management, cover crops between rows, etc.
