AMATO VINO ‘wilds’
The ‘wilds’ are home to emerging Mediterranean varieties, micro-batches, skinsy ferments and other eclectic wines. Featuring single vineyards, hand-picks, natural ferments – and incorporating minimal winemaking input and unconventional vessels for fermentation/maturation – this is the wild stuff.
Packaged under labels bearing in-house artworks/designs/photography the ‘wilds’ include Teroldego, Nebbiolo, Sangiovese, Primitivo, Marsanne, Trousseau, and Savagnin.
AMATO VINO ‘mantra’
The ‘mantra’ series is all about the classic Margies grape varieties, albeit with the Amato Vino lo-fi twist. The emphasis is on vineyard site & fruit purity, working with small fruit parcels to bring out the best from each site. Wild ferments (open and barrel), no adds, no fining and filtration are all central to the mix.
Wines include a Barrel-aged Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon.
AMATO VINO ‘fusa’
‘Fusa’… the home for Amato blends (foo-za). Utilising emerging/alternative varieties as the basis for the blend, seeking to create juicy, fresh drinkability, yet complex and alluring wines – packed with flavour but oh-so light on their feet. The Bianco and Rosso are fruit-forward, fleshy and flavoursome versions of some of their favourite grape
varieties and are made for short to mid-term drinking.
