Size: 75cl bottle

A carbonic maceration of aleatico has several pseudonyms in the world of natural wine: "sick natty piss," "straight-up glou," and "juicy banger" are all acceptable alternatives.

Profits from this bottle go to an association of citizens and farmers of Lazio, fighting against the construction of a geothermic plant in Lake Bolsena. The plant is in dispute as not only will it be a major contributor to air pollution, but it may also disrupt the integrity of the land around it, leaving the region vulnerable to earthquakes.
