Winemaker

Organic Viticulture has been employed in this vineyard after 2 years undergoing conversion into Biodynamic methods. Vines are trained in the Guyot system. The vineyard is manually harvested.

Winemaking

Fermentation and maceration undertaken in Amphora of terracotta. Wine is then aged in amphora for 12 months. The Montepulciano grapes, coming from Esate owned vineyards and are collected in boxes and carried to the cellar. Here the grapes are de-stemmed and gently crushed, then transferred into the clay amphoras where indigenous yeasts take over and lead the fermentation process. The grape skins are softly plunged into the juice, in order to prevent the extraction of the stronger tannins. The maceration process usually last around twelve days, after which the skins are separated from the wine and softly pressed. The Montepulciano wine then rests and refines in the amphoras all the way through the malolactic fermentation, until it is ready to be bottled.

Food Recommendation

Pair with a dish of rustic, smoky northern sausage, polenta and fresh fennel salad.
