TROCCOLONE

OUR LATEST INTERPRETATION ON SANGIOVESE
WHERE THE WINE WAS BORN was created in order to give a certain visibility and identity to the grapes of a single vineyard plot which, fermented on their own for several years now, have always given us particularly interesting wine in terms of fragrance and fresh drinking pleasure.
WHY THE AMPHORA Well aware of the potential of this parcel’s production, we searched for a container in which the grapes could be fermented and then aged to fully bring out their original character and their varietal aromas. After a period of trial and experimentation begun in the 2012 vintage, we came to the conclusion that the best solution would be the use of terracotta containers. A lengthy search for the proper characteristics resulted in our choice of two terracotta amphorae with a 500 liter (130 gallon) capacity produced from the soil of Impruneta near Florence (i.e. a special area of Tuscany long known for the quality of its terracotta), worked manually with the technique known as a colombina, one which does not utilize moulds. The entire surface is left in its natural state without varnishing, vitrification, or other techniques or substances.

... our hands move carefully among the green leaves to position the shoots.
Our arms seem to join with other arms: the vineshoots.
And our faces are always looking up to see if it is raining or fine
We suffer so much in bad years, perhaps just as much in good years
Because then it is all down to us... Marco Capitoni
