Vinified through the ancient “Governo Toscano” method with Sangiovese Prugnolo Gentile grapes slightly over-ripe by drying, it ages for 24
months in barrels, large and small, and then refines at least 12 months in glass.
The 2013 is a vintage that surprised us all in the end, for better or for worse. The climatic discontinuity put pressure over the fruit ripening, up to a nearly perfect September which
gave us well concentrated and balanced fruits, but also offered thin skins that could hardly stand the first autumn rains. In this scenario, finally a bit ‘”classic” for the decade,
our focus was once again put on careful selection in the vineyard and over the triage tables. Its wines are among the most intense of all time, thus renewed thanks also to the
always fascinating work of the indigenous yeasts.
