region: made by grape growers and winemakers using 100% sustainable farming and minimal-intervention in the appellation of maremma on the southwest coast of the tuscan wine region. The Mistral wind coming down through France hitting the coast of Italy gives the grapes strength and structure. The wines produced here are less expensive than other parts of Tuscany yet the quality is outstanding. Our grape growers and wine makers mix traditional winemaking with modern techniques to perfect the wines. They move forward with innovation but also look back at tradition.
winemaking: When visiting during the harvest season, we learned about their focus on Innovation, Tradition and Knowledge. We witnessed the collection of the grapes and saw each step of the production from the very beginning. Innovation and tradition go hand in hand in order to create good clean wines. You’ll taste all the flavors of this territory every time you take a sip of good clean rosé.
grapes: a refreshing blend of native italian grapes from the tuscan countryside near the sea. you can taste the unique and perfect combination of climate, soil and altitude with little outside intervention.
sangiovese: one of the most important red grapes in Italy. The clone that can be usually found in this area of Maremma is called Morellino. Sangiovese, as a grape variety, also grows abroad in California and Argentina. Its origins are ancient as the Etruscans. Sangiovese means Sangue di Giove, blood of Jove.
ciliegiolo: Its origins are uncertain. According to some sources, it arrived in Tuscany from Spain, brought by pilgrims back from Santiago de Compostela, in the 19th century. According to recent studies it originated in Italy, and could be the father of Sangiovese. The name derives from its colour – ciliegiolo as in ciliegia, cherry. It has always been a popular blend with Sangiovese and recently has become the main feature in blends.
