Alicante IGT Costa Toscana

2018

This bottling is part of the "Monovarietali" project, highlighting single varieties and single vineyards whose special characteristics precluded them from blending in other wines.  The grapes are sourced from a parcel called "Vigna della Pieve," with sandy volcanic soils rich in pebbles, planted to Alicante Nero, a common Mediterranean variety also known as Grenache in France, Cannonau in the neighbouring island of Sardinia and as Garnacha in Spain. This vineyard sits at 250 meters above sea level. Fruit was harvested the first week of September at yields of 50 hl/ha. Vinification is part carbonic (30%) and part destemmed.  Aged 6 months in cement tanks.  7,500 bottles produced.

"A vivid, fun red with lots of ripe strawberry and floral aromas and flavors, as well as cracked black pepper. Light body and tannins and a crisp finish. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink now."
