IGT Toscana Rosso "Loupé"
90% Sangiovese/10% Colorino/Canaiolo . The true one-off "Loupé" 2020 bottling is the result of an administrative error at the winery: it comes from a single tank destined to be Chianti Classico but overlooked during the DOCG certification process, hence "loupé" or "missed/skipped" in French. As for all Montesecondo wines, the fruit was biodynamically farmed; harvested by hand; mostly destemmed; and fermented spontaneously with indigenous yeasts and without sulfur in concrete tank. The maceration was the Chianti's length of around 12 days but its aging was in tank only, the usual treatment for Montesecondo's IGT Sangiovese (no foudre since it had missed the Chianti cut-off by that time). Also as is Montesecondo's usual way, Loupé was bottled with a small amount of sulfur and without fining or filtering.
