Siemàn, meaning 'six hands' in Venetian dialect, is run by three brothers, Marco, Daniele, and Andrea Filippini. In the Colli Berici DOC, together they farm their four hectares organically, predominantly using grapes native to the region. 'Camaleonte,' or 'Chameleon,' is a frizzante made using Tai Rosso (the local name for Grenache), Garganega, and Pinot Nero—but the blend changes from vintage to vintage, so this sparkler is a little different each year. Fermented in stainless, the must from harvest is added to bottle for second fermentation. It's bright, easy, and refreshing, with vibrant citrus notes and a little toastiness on the finish. No added SO2.

Siemàn


Siemàn is a winery and brewery located in the Berici Hills area in the Veneto region that is run by three brothers Marco, Daniele, and Andrea Filippini.

The name of the vineyard translates to “six hands” in the local dialect, and the three brothers work to be as hands-on as possible in the vineyard—all the grapes are hand harvested.

In the cellar, the brothers try to be as hands-off as possible and will only add a small amount of sulfites if necessary. The wines are certified biodynamically farmed and organic. The reduction of chemicals and focus on nature allows for “the wine glass [to] express all its territorial character.”
