Description

“Detresse” translates a little bit  like ‘in distress’, but is more romantic. The name evokes the fatigue that results from making this wine. This is a collaboration with Aurelien’s friend Riccardo - or a ‘cuvee ensemble’, even more romantic. Aurelien and Riccardo harvested the grapes together at Controvento in Abruzzo, Italy. After that, a lot of wine and very little sleep, they drove the rented refrigerated van 18 hours straight back to Madriat, which was painful but fun (reminding me of a similar experience I had with Luke Burgess in Spain, literally slapping each other to stay awake). Aurelien wanted to make a red wine that drinks like a white, a ‘vin de soif’ with tension. Composed of 50-50 red and white grapes, the montepulciano was directly pressed, and the destemmed berries of trebbiano were fermented into the montepulciano juice where they continued fermenting together.

- notes from Giorgio De Maria
