Giulio Armani


Denavolo, Italy

Giulio, pioneer of natural wine-making since the 70s and on the search for an authentic Emilian wine with an ancient charm, decided to buy some plots to start his own personal wine project in 2005. Though it is not certified Bio, work in the land is conducted with the utmost respect for the environment. While Giulio is constantly experimenting with his wines, producing highly-energetic wines, certain things remain constant, notably his use of sustainable practices, natural fermentation and no additions of sulphites. His experimentation brings wines that are intriguing, but always balanced and full of personality.
