Sanforte

Variety

Sanforte 100%Sanforte is a rare indigenous grape that found its ideal environment in our terroir. It grows in our old vineyard of 65 years, as well as in two newly grafted plots using selected shoots. Sanforte is a vigorous grape, that grows naturally and easily in our vineyards, allowing it to fully express its typicity. DNA- The latest research told us what we have always been convinced of- that Sanforte is its own variety, clearly distinct from Sangiovese. For a few years, we experimented with vinifying small batches of Sanforte to understand its properties and characteristics. In 2016, we saw our first bottling of 100% Sanforte.

Harvest and Winemaking

Sanforte is fermented in small open container where we hand punch down the skins to mix with the liquid must so that the aromas, flavors and colors are extracted delicately. Sanforte is fermented without the addition of enological additives, neither selected yeasts nor sulfites. After the alcoholic fermentation, malolactic fermentation and ageing takes place in wooden barriques and tonneaux of 4th passage.

Sensory Characteristics

Elegant and refined, with notes of black pepper and cherries and a well-balanced acidity. A truly comprehensive wine.

Pairings

Roasted red meats and wild game.

Nicole

Variety

Sangiovese 100%

Harvest and Winemaking

The grapes are hand selected and sorted for quality, coming from our best vineyards- from the highest hill facing southwest. The vine training is cordon/spur.Nicole is the result of a natural fermentation of our Sangiovese grapes, without any enological additives. The vinification takes place in large wooden barrels, with pumping down occurring daily. Ageing occurs in 40Hl wooden barrels for about 10 months, and then bottled without filtration.

Sensory Characteristics

Ruby red in color, Nicole is an example of the elegance and refinement that Sangiovese can achieve. Tannins are present, but are soft and well-integrated. Intriguing and complex aromas, with red fruits well-known to the grape variety. An extraordinarily balanced and harmonious red wine.

Pairings

Well suited for sausages, traditiona Tuscan pasta dishes, semi-aged cheeses, red meats and offal, and tripe. It beautifully pairs with tomato and fish soup.
