This is a certified organic, no sulfur addition winery. The nose shows stewed fruits with soft cherry, light cedar and a second aroma set of anise, plum, and pencil lead. The palate is present with good acidity and a fuller flavor set of ample black fruits, minerals and cedar. D&M Tasting Notes
La Stoppa is a 50 hectare property located in North-West Emilia-Romagna. Founded in the late 19th century by a wealthy lawyer named Gian-Marco Ageno, the estate is currently run by Elena Pantaleoni and head vignaiolo Giulio Armani. 32 hectares of vines are planted in Barbera and Bornada for red, as well as a small amount of Malvasia Candia, Ortrugo and Trebianno for whites.
Today, the wines produced from La Stoppa are typically Emilia, but this wasn't always the case... Moving forward occasionally means taking a step back, and in 1996 Elena and Giulio decided to replant the entirety of their estate in Barbera and Bonarda. Interestingly, the prior owner had taken post-phylloxera re-planting as an opportunity to experiment with noble grapes from around the world which, among others, included Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, Tokay and Pinot Gris.
