A big Italian red with brilliant acidity that cuts through the weight. Dusty, dry tanins evocative of Tuscany.
The Podere Orto vineyard, which sits on unspoilt land at an altitude of 600 miles above sea level (with the red grape varieties facing south-west and the white grape varieties facing north), is the result of a rigorous massal selection. No chemical fertilisers are used, and the soil (with a sand matrix and rich in clay, calcareous and sandstone marl mainly composed of quartz granules) is nourished using mixed flower green manure and biodynamic preparations. Weed control and most of the work in the vineyard is carried out by hand
