Alcohol: 13%

Grape(s): 100% Canaiolo

Localization: San Gimignano, Tuscany, Italy

Tasting Notes: The bouquet opens with raspberries and violets, progressing to orange blossoms and citrus. On the palate, full, very dry, with well crispy modulated acidity. The finish is long, salted, mineral.

Notes: Vinification in steel vats; bottled on the lees at the end of fermentation; strictly organic

Food Pairing: It is the baby-pink for a toast, the thirst of a yachtsmen, the flûte for a party, the pleasure at any time.

The Domain: 200 ha/500 ac of woods on the hill overlooking San Gimignano, in front of the Chianti Classico, between Florence and Siena. It is an unpolluted land, high upon the hill, in clean air, away, far away, from any chemical poison invented by humans.

When we arrived, in 1965, the land was abandoned: the woods had invaded the fields, the olive trees were running wild, the vines were covered by the bushes. We committed ourselves to the soil, and tried our best for a new beginning. We began to breed rabbits as their manure was very good for fertilizing the soil; we bought worms that we spread in the fields to make humus and soften the earth.  We pruned only in winter when the vegetation was dormant. All the cuttings were ground and fermented to make a compost to go back to fertilize the plants. We followed the rules of nature that are dictated by the weather, the days, the seasons.
