FRIZZANTE TOSCANA IGT
Revolta is made only with Vernaccia, cultivated in our vineyard in San Gimignano. We bottled our already-fermenting must and allowed it to finish fermenting in the bottle. A yeast-clouded wine, with extra fine bubbles, is the result. We like to think, that Kong find peace only in his hiding place: Fattoria Amo, away from evil men and those ferocious animals that populated his island. Kong is the symbol of freedom, he rebels against a ruthless and chaotic world and sacrifices himself to escape oppression. Who better than him can represent this wine naturally resistant to oxidation, invigorating with its freshness and its bubbles? A wine that revolutionizes, hence the name Revolta, the ancient tradition of San Gimignano that has always produced a still Vernaccia wine. Furthermore, the presence of natural yeasts on the bottom suggests revolving the bottle, and hence the name Revolta again.

Rebel – 100% Vernaccia grapes – use the centuries-old winemaking method called “Pét-nat,” that produces a sparking wine clouded by yeast. There’s no artificial or technical intervention nor enological manipulation – no clarification or added sulphites – because the wine stays in one bottle from beginning to end. Rebel hasn’t yet been disgorged, the yeast settles on the bottom of the bottle over time and remains as a sediment. Zero residual sugar, an intense foam, apple, pear, citrus, delicious yeasty notes are part of the Rebel character.
WARNING: open the bottle slowly as the yeasts in the wine may release the pressurised carbon dioxide all at once, causing a lot of froth and the spillage of wine.
Our village, with its medieval towers, is one of the few unspoiled places in the world, devoid of modernity thus recalling ancestral methods. Here Kong can climb its stone towers without being attacked by aircrafts and machine guns. He can rise high, not to escape from the human threat, but to enjoy a breathtaking landscape: an ancient undulating ocean of green hills as only Tuscany can offer.

Ann is a tribute to an apparently fragile woman, but who is the only one who – in perfect feminine style – has been able to face the situation with intelligence, empathy and courage. Kong is tamed by Ann’s sweetness and tenderness, as well as by her incomparable beauty. In fact Ann, like this wine, has an ethereal, impalpable, abstract beauty typical of Vernaccia di San Gimignano. On the label Kong holds Ann in his hand and admires her almost enchanted, his gaze says much more than many words. Kong in fact has this dual personality: he is fierce, capable of fighting to the death for Ann, and he is sensitive, in fact he manages to feel ecstasy in front of the beauty of a landscape.
