The estate is situated in the foothills of Monte Amiata and, whilst Sangiovese is the principal variety, the conditions – 320 metres above sea level and constant ventilation (due partly to the proximity to the Tyrrhenian coast and partly to the 15% incline) – allow other varieties such as Ciliegiolo, Montepulciano and Vermentino to thrive. Production is based on organic principles (guaranteed and certified) and winemaking is carried out in the architectural award winning four story gravity feed winery.

70% Sangiovese, 15% Ciliegiolo, 15% Montepulciano

This is such a great wine and so underrated when it comes to Tuscany. It has a little more weight and heft then its cousins in Chianti and there is a wild edge to the wine that is so appealing. Situated further down the coast but with good elevation that provides a cool and fresh snap. PWS

Dark berries, walnuts and dried flowers on the nose follow through to a medium body with firm tannins and a fresh finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink now. JAMES SUCKLING
