Vineyards: All of the grapes are

estate-grown and located all

around their property. The soils

are pretty consistent around

most parcels - limestone and an

alluvial influence, very stony,

gravelly, a soil where not much

else but their vines and olive

trees can thrive. The farming

has been organic since the

first generation in the 1860’s

(though officially certified since

2012), and biodynamic across

all 16 hectares since 2012.

This Cabernet Sauvignon was

previously used for a ‘super

Tuscan’ style of red wine that

the family stopped making

many years ago. These are old,

very low-yielding vines.


Vinification: the grapes are

destemmed and direct pressed

(no skin contact aside from the

time in the press). It is then

transferred to one Tuscan clay

amphora where fermentation

kicks off. The wine is racked

once and retuned to amphora

where it is aged for around

9 months. Bottled with a tiny

sulphite addition, unfined and

unfiltered.
