Notes from Bowler Wines:

"Local dialect for 'vine shoot', 'Sgarzon' is a cooler, sandier 2.5 hectares within the whole Foradori vineyard around the winery on the Campo Rotaliano plateau in the foothills of the Dolomites. Elisabetta planted the vines in guyot from massale cuttings in 1984. The farming is certified-biodynamic and the harvest is by hand. Sgarzon and its identically made companion wine, Morei (from a warmer, stonier site nearby) develop more quickly in clay than the foudre-aged Foradori and Granato and are thus released earlier."

Winemaking
Bunches are hand-harvested then destemmed, with the grapes going directly into clay amphorae (tinajas from J. Padilla in Spain) for an open-top, spontaneous fermentation without sulfur; the vessels are then closed for 6-8 months of maceration. The wine is bottled without fining or flitering and with its only small dose of sulfur.
