"TROCCOLONE" 2016 - the second harvest experiencing the amphora.
"Capitoni" 2013 - the wine, that by practicing a careful selection every year, is produced since 2001.

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

Wines

Our wines originate from vines cultivated according to knowledge both ancient and new, manual skills and attention to understanding what the plants are trying to express. They are the fruit of difficult and often economically disadvantageous growing procedures, like not using chemical weedkiller or removing excess bunches. These are choices we make with pride in our work and the conviction that our products are good and healthy, and will therefore satisfy those searching for real and genuine quality.

Serving with food

In every great wine-producing area the type of wine is also reflected in the traditional local dishes. Our red wines are robust and well-structured yet elegant and aromatic. As the best Tuscan tradition dictates they are particularly well-suited to flavoursome first courses like pasta with meat sauce and, above all, roasted red meats best enhance the combination of food and wine. If you prefer something lighter – of sorts! – we recommend cured meats (best of all Tuscan, because their particular flavour and good fat component go well with the tannins in Sangiovese) or mature cheeses (like our local Pecorino di Pienza).

But we are convinced of one thing above all: all combinations of food and wine are acceptable, as long as those serving and tasting like them. There’s always an excuse to open a bottle of wine we like, and why let the question of serving with food hold you back? If you really have nothing suitable… just drink the wine, for the sheer pleasure of sharing a glass of wine with friends, the fruit of a family’s passion and labour.
