"TROCCOLONE" 2016 - the second harvest experiencing the amphora.
"Capitoni" 2013 - the wine, that by practicing a careful selection every year, is produced since 2001.
"FRASI" 2012 - only in the best vintages from a vineyard of nearly 50 years.
In the last few vintage to discover the evolution of our wines

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.

A. Larson: Medium deep ruby with a rusty rim. The nose has some evolution, dried cherry, spices, wood and tobacco. Quite full palate, some balsamic notes, dry wood, tobacco and dried fruit. Rather long but still young with firm tannin and restrained fruit, should develop. 88
M. Del Monego: Dark garnet red with black centre. Elegant, still slightly closed nose. Ripe berries, mulberries, blackberries, discreet notes of toasted flavours, chocolate in the background. On the palate excellent structure with well balanced tannins and elegant acidity. Good length. 90

Tastings and Visits

Follow the provincial road linking Pienza and Montepulciano at Palazzo Massaini, turn at the junction towards Monticchiello, follow another 3 km of unmade road winding through the cypress trees and you’ll at last reach our home.

Welcoming you at the top of the winery’s driveway is an old cart once used by our peasant ancestors, still loaded with the demijohns and tubs they used. You will find my family and I there among the rows of vines or in the wheatfields. That’s right – because we work hands-on in the countryside, directly involved in sowing, harvesting, and caring for the plants.

Ours is a typical Tuscan farm comprising 50 hectares of sowable land, vineyards, olive groves and woods. It was recorded in the agricultural land register of the Siena area in 1692 and is named “Sedime”, from the Latin meaning “a place where everything stops, rests and relaxes”.

You will be a welcome visitor. We can talk about and show you the farm work we are doing, and let you join in if you like. We can taste wines in the cellar: our own interpretations of Sangiovese, the Tuscan variety par excellence.
