Certified organic, from a single vineyard of 45-year-old vines that has been farmed organically for four decades and biodynamically for over a decade. Native yeast fermentation, unfined and unfiltered, sulfur at bottling is the only addition to this wine. Lia Vi means “little nests” in Piedmontese dialect. It’s the front yard of Luca, Matteo, Bruna and Luigi’s house/winery in San Marzano Oliveto. After years of organically farming this field, it has become notably alive, full of birds and bugs and worms and small critters: hence the name Lia Vi, to recognize it’s healthy diversity of residents.
