SANGIOVESE
EARTHY & COMPLEX
BIODYNAMIC FARMING
CRITIC SCORE 90+

Farming: Biodynamic

Winemakers: Virginie Saverys & Matteo Giustianini

Grapes: 100% Sangiovese

Terroir: Clay rich soils of marine origin. The vineyards were planted between 1990 and 2006. The vines are cordon-trained, guyot-trained and bush-trained at an altitude of 270 - 350 metres a.s.l.

Vinification: Alcoholic fermentation is carried out by the yeasts selected from our pied de cuve. Pied de cuve is the process by which a vat of grapes is harvested in advance and used to prepare a natural yeast, specific for a grape variety and / or vineyard. This will become the basic yeast for the fermentation of all the other grapes, which will be harvested later. With this process we enhance the link between man, the vineyard and the wine that will be so representative of our habitat. Maceration on the skins for approximately 10 days with daily pumping over.

Aging: At least 6 months in oak barrels and a minimum of 3 months in the bottle

Tasting Notes: The Rosso di Montepulciano has a ruby red colour highlighted by purple reflections. In the nose it opens with notes of raspberry, strawberry and blackberry that combine with aromas of sweet spices such as cinnamon and nutmeg. On the palate it is pleasant and fresh, with a good acidity. Ready to drink, it has a delicate and smooth tannic structure accompanied by generous balsamic aftertaste notes typical of Sangiovese.
