  • This sophisticated and graceful Sangiovese overflows with luscious ripe plum, vibrant red berry flavours, and delicate notes of liquorice and tobacco. It exudes perfect harmony and boasts delicate tannins, presenting an outstanding reflection of the grape variety and the unique terroir. To craft this wine, the grapes were meticulously destemmed, pressed, and underwent a 10 to 12-day skin maceration, ensuring the extraction of rich aromas, complex flavours, and refined tannins. Fermentation occurred with naturally occurring yeasts in stainless steel tanks, meticulously controlled to maintain optimal temperatures. Following this, the wine was carefully racked and underwent malolactic conversion to impart a soft, velvety texture. After maturing for 24 months in large, neutral barrels made from Slavonian oak, the wine underwent an additional six months of bottle ageing in the cellar before release.

The grapes were gently destemmed and pressed, followed by skin maceration, which lasted 10 to 12 days, and the aromas, flavours, and fine tannins were extracted. Fermentation occurred with wild yeasts in stainless steel tank, under strictly controlled temperatures. The wine was then racked before it went through malolactic conversion, softening the palate. Maturation lasted for 24 months, in large, neutral barrels of Slavonian oak; the wine underwent a further six months bottle ageing in cellar prior to release.

This elegant and refined Sangiovese is brimming with ripe plum, red berry fruit, and overtones of liquorice and tobacco. With great balance and fine tannins, it is an excellent expression of variety and terroir.

Winery

The Sangiovese grapes come from the single vineyard Il Roccafiore in the Todi subregion of Umbria. The micro-climate experiences cold and rainy winters and cool ventilated summers, which help to produce a refreshing vibrancy to the grapes. The vineyard is positioned at 300 to 380 metres above sea level, where considerable thermal excursions between day and night allow a slow, gradual ripening of the fruit, which encourages rich fruit flavours balanced by natural acidity. The soils comprise white clay, calcareous marl, chalk and sand, offering the vines great nutrients and balance. The Guyot-trained vines are carefully cultivated following sustainable and organic principles. Weeding takes place in alternate rows, care is taken to prevent soil erosion and compaction; green manure is used for fertilisation and grasses and cruciferae plants improve the soil structure and fertility.
