Overview

Toscana Rosso IGT

The grapes are hand-harvested, de-stemmed and sorted manually, and are then pressed and gravity-fed to the vinification tanks.

Each variety is vinified separately.

Maceration on the skins continues for 20 days in stainless-steel vats at a controlled temperature of 26°C. Alcoholic fermentation lasts 10 days on average.

After racking, the wine is placed in Allier oak barrels, one third new, another third two years old and the final third 3 years old.

After the malolactic fermentation, which takes place around the month of November, the two grape varieties are blended.

Maturation in casks lasts 6 months, after which period the wine returns to the stainless-steel vats for approximately one month, then being gently filtered, bottled and subjected to a final 6-month maturing in bottles.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Located in the Valdarno region at the foothills of the Pratomagno mountains, the estate enjoys a highly privileged position with optimal viticultural conditions. The soil was modelled by the movements of the great lakes which covered the entire area during the Pliocene era millions of years ago. These origins have strongly influenced both the composition and the shape of the area, geographically and topographically. All of these aspects played an important role when in 1993 the oenologist Nicolò D'Afflitto, after extensive soil analysis, uprooted the old vineyards and selected vines best suited to the soil's characteristics.
