Francesco Redi has written the playful poem “Bacchus in Tuscany”, BACCO IN TOSCANA, in the XVII century. It is a glorification of the Tuscan wines.
He imagined that the God arrived in Tuscany and choosing it as his new homeland because the best wines in the world are produced here.
Bacchus comes with his wife Ariadne and his funny entourage of satyrs and nymphs. They are singing and dancing the BOMBABABÀ, a Tuscan dance in vogue at that time. Its name is perfect to remember us the joy of living that the wine gives us!
VARIETIES: Sangiovese, Syrah
VINEYARD:It is born from our vineyards, along the Fossa di Bolgheri stream. We manage them with care and expertise, according to the best practices of sustainable viticulture.
Climate: Mediterranean, tempered by the breezes from the sea, with a broad day-night temperature differentials on summer.
Soil: alluvial, very deep, sandy and sandy-clay, rich (more or less) of pebbles.
PRODUCTION: We selected grapes from homogeneous vineyard parcels. Each of them is harvested and fermented separately. Our work is handcrafting, done with the utmost attention to detail and the aim of enhancing the territorial characteristics of the grapes.
The selected grapes were gently de-stemming and pressed after a few minutes from the harvest. Aging took place for 3 months in used oak barrels, on the lees, with weekly stirring. It is clarified with some racking, not filtered. Then there is an aging in bottle for 3 months, in the best storage conditions.
