Posca Rossa is a unique  biodynamic cuvee made by Federico Orsi in Emilia-Romagna. Non-vintage wine is drawn from a big old concrete vat which contains a blend of Barbera, Negretto, Sangiovese and a small percentage of international varieties. It comes from different vineyards of various ages and includes a little of every year back to 2008. The wines have been made in different ways and in different vessels. The majority of the blend is made up of wine from the most recent vintage and the vat is constantly being topped up with young wine to prevent oxidation. This has a rather fascinating combination of bright fruit, savoury depth, classic Barbera acidity and an intriguing note of briny black olives.
