Vintage notes

the 2022 harvest on the lands of Monte Oliveto was a year blessed by the resilience of the plants and the providential rains of August. The winter of 2022 was marked by an almost total absence of rain. Budding occurred normally, followed by a rapid vegetative development due to high temperatures from the beginning of May and an early flowering. The lack of spring rains, combined with very high temperatures from June onwards, slowed down the growth of the grapes. Only the rains in the middle weeks of August allowed the vines to overcome the water stress and produce grapes with high aromatic potential. The harvest took place a week earlier than normal, between the first and third weeks of September. The grapes were healthy and perfectly ripe, giving us intense and harmonious wines with the typical salinity of Monte Oliveto.

Rebel is a sparkling wine, produced in a 30-year-old-vines vineyard planted at 900+ feet above sea level, which is rooted in sandy soils rich in fossils. Rebel is a fruit-driven Pét Nat, showing flavors of pear, citrus zest, and a touch of green apple with scents of broom flowers and a yeasty finish. It has soft carbonation and fine, tight bubbles.
