Tech Details

  • The vineyards are located in Riparbella, in Tuscany's coastal Maremma region, miles from the Tyrrhenian Sea.
  • The grapes are deposited on a conveyor belt that moves them using gravity (to avoid damaging the skins) to the de-stemming machine where the leaves and stems are removed. From there, the fruit moves via conveyor belt to a filtering machine that gently breaks the skins to release juice as the grapes drop to fill conical-shaped stainless steel tanks. Temperature-controlled fermentation begins and juice is pumped over the grapes every 6 hours. After 2 weeks the grapes are gently pressed.
  • The wine is aged 12 months in half new/half used French oak barrels and 12 months in the bottle.
