Production Area: vineyards located at about 400 mt s.l.m. on rich soils of skeleton for the most part comprised of marl (rock tuscany in which Chianti owes its character)
Year of Planting: between 2000 and 2002, modern systems
Form of Breeding: Guyot
Production: about 1.2 kg of grapes per vine
Harvest: by hand in boxes, by mid-October
Vinification: destemming delicate of the grapes; spontaneous fermentation and maceration at controlled temperature in stainless steel for about 10 days, with numerous pumpovers and delestage. After the malolactic fermentation, which takes place very rapidly due to the absence of sulphites, the wine is decanted and kept at a temperature of 10 degrees
Maturation: in stainless steel for about 9 months. The wine is then bottled to retain all its freshness and integrity
Serving suggestions: ideal throughout the meal, and pleasant and ready to drink
This is the first step towards the realization of a dream: to produce wines “uncontaminated,” PURO is made from 100% Sangiovese vinified in stainless steel, without the addition of sulfites, yeasts and tannins. The vinification of this wine is an exercise in acrobatics. To maintain the purity of the grapes without the use of chemistry is not simple, but it is possible.
The sulfur as an antioxidant and antibacterial agent is replaced with the physical means and not chemical, such as low storage temperatures, frequent checks of dissolved oxygen and appropriate filtration to maintain the wine pure, microbiologically
