Movia – Kapovolto Zero Dosage – 2015

With only 1,200 bottles, produced in the best vintages, Kapovolto has become Movia’s latest pearl that compared to the Puro bubbles can be disgorged at the opening upside down. A 100% Chardonnay with selected grapes from multiple young vineyards located mostly in Slovenia where they are also harvested late. The grapes ferment spontaneously in steel tanks and in barrique, in the latter aging 12 months, then being bottled for the second fermentation in the bottle by adding some must from the last current vintage instead of liqueur de expedition then remaining to rest another 48 months. A quirky and fun bubbly, it has notes of fruit that blend with a vigorous drink, very mineral and persistent on the finish.

Description

A 100-year history, the Movia winery is attributed its birth in 1820 when it was bought by the Kristancic family, which began wine production. It is located in Collio halfway between Italy and Slovenia, a borderland that saw it play a leading role in old Yugoslavia during the Tito years as the main supplier of wine in his regime. Now the winery, led by Alesh Kristancic, has 25 hectares in which Ribolla, Istrian Malvasia, Chardonnay and also Merlot along with Cabernet Sauvignon are grown, all following a natural philosophy in which biodynamics are practiced, which earned certification in 2004. An innovative and rigorous style is practiced in the winery where the wines make long macerations on the skins, ferment with indigenous yeasts, clarification and filtration performed before bottling. Among the few ever in the production of bubbles sold to the public to be disgorged at opening, so that purity is the basis that distinguishes them. Fun and at the same time respectable in what is a true art in wine making.
