ABOUT THIS WINE
Made with fruit from organically and biodynamically farmed vineyards which is made up of mostly clay soils. he red grapes fall into the vats by gravity and undergo whole berry fermentation outdoors, but under a tent structure. A minimum of sulphur is added. The amount of foot-treading (pigeage) or punching down depends on the season. The wines are then aged either in concrete vat or older oak casks.
ABOUT THIS PRODUCER
Cosimo Maria Masini’s vineyards lie in San Miniato (Pisa) known for its exquisite white truffles in the heart of the hill country through which the Arno and Elsa rivers run. It is here that we cultivate approximately 40 hectares of grapes, olive trees, wheat, vegetables and fruit trees.The nearby warm Tyrrhenian sea and the Tramontana winds that blow down from the north create an unrivaled site climate characterized by very hot days and consistently cool nights. Combine these weather conditions with vine-friendly soil laden with the fossil remains of ancient sea life and its no wonder that our grapes achieve such perfect ripeness. Stewardship of this wonderful gift of nature is our pledge and the vision we strive to achieve. Great wines are created in the vineyard, not in the wine cellar. That is why we have been committed to biodynamic agriculture since 2003 for only biodynamic vineyard management can ensure that the soul and signature sensory perceptions of our wines will emerge. At Cosimo Maria Masini, our grapes are grown in harmony with climate and soil before they are pressed and fermented as naturally as possible. In the wine cellar we use natural yeasts, which means that fermentation is carried out with yeasts found naturally on the grapes. This helps to ensure that all the characteristics of the grape are present in the wine.
