More details: Suitable for vegans. The grapes are de-stemmed and gently fall by gravity into a 30 hl French oak barrel. The grapes soak for a few days before natural fermentation starts extracting colour, flavour and tannins from the skins. Once fermentation begins, the cap is monitored daily and kept wet by a process of three remontage and delestage a day. The wine is then transferred into old French oak barrels. The following spring the wine undergoes natural malolactic fermentation, decreasing the acid in the wine. As natural evaporation occurs the barrels are topped up. The barrels are left untouched for another four years allowing a natural settling to occur without filtration before bottling. Vines planted in 1975. 1500 bottles produced.

Casa Raia is located near the medieval town of Montalcino in Tuscany, Italy. The estate of nine hectares (1.75 ha of vines) once belonged to the Biondi Santi family who ''created'' the Brunello di Montalcino wine in the 19th century. In 1997 the then abandoned farm house was restored by Pierre-Jean Monnoyer and his wife Kalyna who have been producing natural wines since. In the vineyard, their goal is to maintain the biodiversity and natural balance of their vines. In autumn the soil is worked gently and seeded with a variety of organic plants and flowers providing natural nutrients to the soil. The use of pesticides and herbicides is banned on the entire estate.
