Varietals: Sangiovese 85% and Mammolo 15%

Terroir: Pliocenic origin, sedimentary strata with yellow sands and clays. Significant presence of marine fossils.

Microclimate: Temperate – hot climate. Average to high rainfall, cold winters and warm to hot summers with sunny sunsets.

Sun Exposure: South – West. Vineyards running north-south.

Vineyard Work: Soil work alternating with natural grass covering and cordon pruning with a few spurs and a low number of buds per plant. We perform crop thinning during the growing season and a final selection during harvesting. Grapes are hand-picked and placed into small cases, moved to the cellar, and further selected with a conveyor belt at pressing.

Mammolo grapes are left to macerate for three days and then softly pressed. Skin-less vinification with indigenous yeasts at controlled temperatures. Whole Sangiovese grapes undergo a week-long maceration and fermentation with indigenous yeasts. Malo-lactic fermentation and aging in stainless steel vats at controlled temperatures for three months.

Serving Suggestions: ready-to-drink wine to be served in tulip-shaped glasses.

Pairings: Ideal parings include light meat sauces, pizza, and rich fish dishes like cacciucco, acqua pazza, cod, and tuna steak. Excellent as an aperitivo, it can also be served cold at around 12°C.

The freshness of crunchy fruits, cherry, and violet. A care-free wine, mellow, and easy to drink. Fragrant fruitiness and low-key tanning build into its pleasantness.
