Biodynamic – high quality wines
This estate is adjacent to the Biondi Santi property and the area has a long history of being particularly suited for growing grapes for high quality wines. “Our love for Tuscany and passion for viticulture binds us particularly to this land, our vines and the resulting wines”. The wines come from four different vineyards that add up to a total area of six hectares. Right from the beginning Caroline and Jan studied the soil and the structure of each vineyard in order to fully understand its characteristics.
The Rosso di Montalcino is made from pure Sangiovese. The grapes are selected in the same way as for the Brunello di Montalcino. The difference is found in the wine-making. Spontaneous fermentation starts after one or two days of maceration. The temperature is automatically controlled so that it does not exceed 30°C. The must macerates for two or three weeks, depending on the vintage, in order to obtain mainly fruity flavours and finesse. Once fermentation has concluded, the wine is transferred to barriques and small 500-litre barrels, where the malolactic fermentation takes place. After maturing for one year in the barrels, the wine is bottled and kept in the cellar for another three months.
Combines a delicate, pretty perfume of raspberry and strawberry fruit with precision and a charming gentleness.
