This wine from Tenuta di Valgiano is made from 60% Sangiovese with 40% made up from Cigliegiolo, Canaiolo, Colorino, Barbera, Tazzelenghe, Syrah and Merlot. Here the vines are older, and the soil is from the pre-glacial era, dating back some 60 million years! This wine is the clock of time in the wine because it has huge ageing potential.
Terroir: Sand and clay
Age of the vines: 35-40 years old
Vinification: Grapes are hand-harvested. They are crushed by feet for gentle tannin extraction. Aged in French oak barrels between 15 to18 months and then aged 12 months in the bottle
