Zoom 2014 Bonavita Faro Nerello Mascalese

2014 Bonavita Faro Nerello Mascalese


Bonavita has one main objective as a winery –  to contribute to the reevaluation of one of the most ancient of Sicilian wines, the 'Faro' of Messina.

Situated in Sicily's north east, Messina isn't really the place that people think of when it comes to high quality Nerello Mascalese. But they've been making wine from Nerello for at least as long as nearby Mt Etna.

Here the wine is more in the red fruit spectrum, dusty, savoury, sturdy. Nerello really is one of the least understood and underrated varieties anywhere in the world. Vines are 80 years old, the viticulture is excellent, the wine making hands-off.

What is natural wine?

The philosophy of natural wine is one of minimal-intervention, from vineyard to cellar. Natural wines are made using quality grapes, generally grown using organic and biodynamic practices, however vineyards may not always be certified as such due to the restrictive nature of these certification systems. Natural wines in most cases won't be filtered or fined, processes which generally involve the use of animal products.

Are your wines vegan friendly?

In almost all cases yes! Generally if you see "unfiltered and unfined" this will be an assurance that no animal products have been used in the process. The fining process is where conventional winemakers will often use egg and fish products (yep pretty gross) to remove sediment from wines. The sediment is natural, healthy and adds flavour so natural wine makers almost always leave some of it in.

Are your wines chemical free?

In most cases yes, natural wines generally use grapes grown using biodynamic or organic farming methods and will have none of the over 200 additives that can be found in conventional wines, with the occasional exception of a tiny amount of sulphur. Some natural winemakers choose to add a small amount of sulphur (SO2) to ensure their wines are less volatile, while a lot of natural winemakers believe strongly against this.
