Sgavetta is a variety that can only be found around Modena and Reggio Emilia. It was documented for the first time in the late 19th century and always described positively in the few records that are available about it. In 1970 there were at least 170 hectares of vineyards with her, but in 2010 it was only 15 and much more (rather less) it should not be today.
Why it suddenly went downhill so steeply has its reason in the small, very compact grapes that can only be read by hand - an eminent disadvantage in a wine region polished like the Emilia. In principle, Sgavetta has all the attributes to get out of her excellent wines. It has a thick shell that read really ripe, both enough color and tannin in the wine, a lively but not too intensive acidity and has a wide -ranging aroma profile shaped by dark berries and flower notes. The first time this can now be understood using Ca 'de noci's new wine Kyathos del Poggio, the only one known to us, pure sgavetta interpretation.
