Our main aim is to make terroir-driven wines which express the distinct character of our vineyards. We use indigenous yeasts when we can and pursue subtle wine management to help each wine find its natural path and preserve the characteristics of each grape lot. We ferment and age each lot separately for our classic wines, and only decide on which blend we think will do a particular grape and vintage justice after the ageing process.
Starting with harvest 2013, our main vinification and ageing cellar is located at Lodola estate, which we acquired in 2012. Here we keep both the "botti," which are large barrels made of Slavonian oak and traditionally used for Sangiovese in Tuscany, and the smaller 225 liter casks called "barriques" which are made of French oak.
The "Vinsantaia," where our Vin Santo and Occhio di Pernice age in "caratelli," small 50 litre oak casks, is located at Le Capezzine estate.
