What did he have to do with vinegar anyway; Pliny the Elder, was a Roman author, naturalist, and natural philosopher, as well as naval and army commander of the early Roman Empire, and personal friend of the emperor. His passion, my passion, the wine vinegar, he said, ‘give it to Christ, to comfort him on the Cross’.
So, not much but with the best grapes of the Collio, whole fermented in small vats, to immediately begin spontaneous acidification for the autumn to come give me a fantastic vinegar. A few years of aging in oak barrels to combine the power of a velvety harmony. Finally without sulfur, without any filtering or tampering in a Bottle. The end result of the fermentation of the wine is vinegar, the finest made and comparable to Barolo.
