Sangiovese 100%

The Sangiovese grapes were grown in the 12.5 hectare Bucerchiale vineyard on the ancient Selvapiana estate. The oldest part of the vineyard was planted in 1968, and the youngest in 1995. The vineyard faces south/south-east and is situated at 150-200 metres above sea level. The soil is predominantly clay and limestone. The older vines are planted at a density of 2,500 per hectare, whereas the younger ones are planted at 5,200 vines per hectare. The vineyard is cultivated organically, with cover cropping.

2013 was an excellent year for the Sangiovese grape in particular despite a wet spring that led to pressure from fungal diseases, particularly during flowering. Cool weather in August further slowed the already-delayed growth of the vines. However, long, slow ripening kept acidity levels fresh and promoted tannin maturation without excessive sugar levels. Picking started in late September and continued until mid October.

Fermentation took place partly in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks, and partly in cement tanks, at 30°C and lasted 20-25 days. Pumping over took place daily to extract colour and tannin. After a short period of maceration, the wine was pressed off the skins and malolactic fermentation took place. In January following the harvest, the wine was transferred to medium-sized oak casks and French oak barriques (of which 10% was new) and was matured for 15 months before bottling.
