The Primitivo grapes are selected from low-yielding, fully organic vineyards in the Salento area of Southern Puglia. Intense ruby-red color, with a complex bouquet, reminiscent of cherries, dried berries and toasted almonds. In the mouth it is full-bodied yet smooth and elegant with a silky texture. The finish is long and lingering, with a burst of spiced cherries and bright fruit and earthiness at the end.
30% of the wine for 12 months in second passage American and French oak barriques.

Vermentino Chardonnay Toscana IGT
Tenuta Montecchiesi's white wine: its vineyards are located in Montecchio, at 270 metres above sea level. Vermentino is the indigenous white grape par excellence of central Italy. Intense straw yellow, with gold highlights. A generous bouquet marries notes of Mediterranean hawthorn blossom and rosemary to crisper impressions of mandarin orange and pencil lead. On the palate, it exhibits stylish grace and superb balance, concluding with a finish marked by ripe fruit and a tangy vein of mineral.
A minimum of 3 months in steel, with once-weekly bâttonage of the fine lees, followed by a 45-day bottle-ageing.
