Giol Sesto Senso 2016

75cl Giol Bronner, Italy > Treviso Crisp, fresh and zesty
"Being naturally disease resistant, the Bronner grape is a good choice for organic production but often produces fairly neutral wines. Not so here, with its tangy concentration and pronounced herbaceous, tropical and stone fruit character. This vegan and organic wine would work well to accompany fresh plant-based dishes, perhaps with tangy Middle eastern flavours and spicing." Aoife Carrigy - Food & Wine Magazine - **** The Guinea Pig Club

Giol boasts the oldest winery in Italy since 1427, producing wines exclusively from grapes grown on the historic La Bicana, Il Bassonet, Le Gerette and Spiridiona estates.

Seeking to combine the highest quality with the greatest respect for the environment all 25 hectares of vineyards are farmed organically, eschewing the use of chemically synthesised products and avoiding the forced production of the vines. Giol were one of the first to be certified in 1993 and they make maximum use of renewable energy sources whilst protecting the environment, the fertility of the vineyard and the nutritional value of the grapes.

Below are some examples of their practices:
- No use of herbicides, but instead till the land and plough the grass into the soil -Advantages: re-oxygenation of the soil and enrichment with organic substances, nitrogen and trace elements; - No use of insecticides or chemical fertilisers, but solely products of vegetable or mineral origin -Advantages: lower toxicity for the vines and less polluting for the soil.
