Do.t.e is an experimental entity that seeks alternative answers in the management of contemporary viticulture. It’s taking one step back in order to go two steps forward. A return to agricultural origins that clearly defines the present and realistically imagines the future. It’s the desire to stand out with wines that spontaneously expresses their reason for being —beyond statutes and production regulations— based on the foundational principles of the entire project: health, ethics, everyday. Going back to wine as something able to reflect places, arouse feelings, heat up relationships.
The harvest is anticipated in order to preserve higher acidity. The grapes ferment spontaneously with their own yeast in stainless steel tanks. After racking, the wine goes into concrete tanks where it matures and decants until the spring. With the new moon of March, the wine is bottled without fining or filtration, with a small percentage of its own juice that has been frozen immediately after crushing. By summer, the wine spontaneously re-ferments in bottle. (Producer’s notes)
