This is Evan’s flagship wine! He was one of the first natural winemakers to jump into the red-white blend pool. Working at once with all of the Piedmontese varieties found at Fox Hill (1.6 ha, sandstone soil, organic), Feints is quite an unexpected wine. It's a co-fermentation of Dolcetto, Barbera, Nebbiolo, Arneis and a hair of Montepulciano...yes, four reds and a white (and nearly 30% white this year)! Full carbonic maceration keeps things poppy, light on its feet and fresh. For all intents and purposes this is the complex light red wine go-to and truly couldn't be more gluggable. No fining, filtration, or sulfur added.
