Nevermore

Soft, meditative, and melancholic

The raven returns to knock on the door bringing heady scents of a land waiting to be discovered.

Dark Sweetness

Inspired by the long tradition of Italian Vin Santi, Nevermore reinterprets Malvasia Aromatica di Candia through a unique aging process. Drying the grapes on the vine allows to maintain a very high flavor concentration that is transformed into a wine full of character through slow pressing and 8 years of aging in oak, cherry, chestnut, and acacia woods.

character

A sweet wine that is impossible to imitate, unfiltered but stable thanks to a non-traditional aging process that includes four rackings in small 100-liter barrels over the course of a decade.

And the silken, sad, uncertain rustling of each purple curtain
Thrilled me—filled me with fantastic terrors never felt before;
So that now, to still the beating of my heart, I stood
repeating “’Tis some visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door
—Some late visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door;—
This it is and nothing more.”

– Edgar Allan Poe, The Raven

history

Nevermore is the latest creation of Cantina Luretta. A sweet white wine produced by drying Malvasia Aromatica grapes on the vine, aged for eight years in 100-liter barrels made of oak, cherry, chestnut, and acacia woods. Unfiltered and naturally clear thanks to the slow aging process, Nevermore is an exclusive wine with an intense and refined flavor that offers a perfect balance between sweetness and acidity.

In 2021, Nevermore won Slow Wine’s highest award, joining the guide. The Top Wine award, besides celebrating excellent organoleptic qualities, is given to those wines which can condense in the glass characteristics related to terroir, history, and environment. The attribution of this award also implies the total absence of chemical weeding in vineyards.
