COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Un giovane Chianti seduce con la sua forza una Duchessa, lei lo ammalia con l’eleganza ed insieme vanno poi a sposarsi, con un corredo al 50% mosto di vino e 50% mosto di birra in un fermento unico, creando un’alchimia indimenticabile. L’unione prosegue in bottiglia con l’aggiunta del liqueur de tirage che li rende spumeggianti. Dimorano in bottiglia insieme ai loro piccoli lieviti, che doneranno fragranza al loro matrimonio. Invecchiano insieme e poi il mago Birraio dona loro nuova vita con il rito magico della sboccatura, aggiungendo la pozione, il liqueur d’expedition, come da antica ricetta tramandata di generazione in generazione. Rarissima prima edizione rilasciata in quantitativi estremamente limitatati dal Birrificio Del Borgo, prodotta con mosto fiore di Montepulciano e metodo Champenoise. Un gioco di equilibri tra vino e birra senza paragoni. Un articolo assolutamente da collezionare.

Brewed with 39% of Sangiovese wine wort, fermented with wine yeast and refermented with champagne yeast.
Produced at Azienda Agricola Tenuta di Bibbiano.

Davros (2535) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 25, 2016
Pours ruby red with a large lasting head fed by steady streams of fine bubble. Certainly looks good. Nose shows raspberries, cherry, soft wine notes, apples, grapes and some soft funk. Flavours are delicate but include cherry, red wine, soft funk and rose-like notes. Very light, velvety mouthfeel.

Mjp12 (1097) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2015
The is supper complex, with aromas coming from the champagne yeast, and like funk. It has a great wine based sourness, but the abv gives a sweet backbone.

Ippopodio (109) - ITALY - DEC 7, 2015
Una birra dal colore di uno champagne Rosè, schiuma bianca e lieve che svanisce rapidamente. Aroma vinoso, sentori di champagne, frutti rossi, leggermente legnosa. In bocca è più morbida di quanto ci si aspetti, l’acido non aggredisce il palato, il dolce vinoso dato dal Sangiovese è particolarmente caratterizzante e della vecchia Duchessa resta solo il fascino antico e l'eleganza.

77ships (6526) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - NOV 29, 2015
Sampled 750 ml. bottle @ “Vini Birre Ribelli 2015”. Interesting wine / beer hybrid. Fox red amber, little tanned head. Nose is oxidation, dust, mellow spoiled red fruits. Carbonation is too high, obscuring the taste a bit. Taste is dull strawberry, fizzy, malt, empty, basic white sugar, yeast, med. sweetness, light grapes, a lot of the wine part seems to have fermented out here. A bit dull really to be honest, def. expected more from this one. Okay but not if you purchased a bottle unlike me given the price.

hrabren (465) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 27, 2015
At Vinocom, Zagreb, Croatia. Thanks Birra del Borgo crew. Went out quickly after a pop. Deep copper, bubbly head. Wine, red fruits, sour fruits. Wine character with a sour note in the beginning, sweet afterwards. Grapes, fruit aromas, you can feel the wine wart. Medium body, medium carbonation. Alcohol well hidden. Very good.
