The Barbera grapes provide acidity and freshness, Sangiovese body and elegance. Marzemino contributes to the colour, and Schiava Gentile bestows fineness and a delicate bouquet.
The grapes come from their vineyard high in the Botticino municipality hills, at an altitude of 350 metres. The terrain is a marly limestone, with a very high lime percentage, due to the marble of which those hills are made. The grapes are harvested by hand in early October and immediately destemmed.
Colle degli Ulivi ferments in large concrete vats, with pigéage and rémontage carried out during maceration. Ageing also takes place in concrete casks to maintain this wine’s freshness, and lasts about 20 months.View more information
Noventa “Botticino” wines are not filtered, so that all their characteristics are kept intact; any sediment which may form is merely a sign that this is truly a genuine product.
Through this process, we have achieved a Botticino with a bright ruby red colour, ideal with roast meat or red meat dishes in general, suitable for drinking over a period of five or more years.
Aging: Concrete casks for about 20 months.

Noventa is the home of BOTTICINO DOC, a blend of native Italian grape varieties. They mainly use Barbera and Sangiovese, with a little Marzemino and a little Schiava Gentile. The Botticino land is an amphitheatre of hills arranged in the form of a horseshoe, open towards the south.Find out more
