NOTES FROM OUR SOMMELIERS

👁 orange yellow;

👃🏻on the nose: complexity of aromas ranging from medicinal herbs to white flowers to barley candy to yellow fruit;

👄 interesting drink, because the round sip is invigorated not only by the lively freshness and flavor, but also by a tannin compound. It ends with the aftertaste (i.e. the aromas that are perceived after swallowing) elegant and with discreet persistence.


RECOMMENDED COMBINATION

The complexity of this wine and its characteristics make it suitable for refinement.
Despite being produced from white grapes, the permanence on the skins gives polyphenols and tannins worthy of a red wine and the slight oxidation makes it even more versatile. Therefore perfect with rich and characterful foods such as a Milanese risotto, with saffron and ossobuco or with a fried egg with truffle, perhaps from San Miniato, or even with mature cheeses and meat-based dishes without too much reduction or long cooking. For example, a duck a l'orange goes perfectly.


REFINEMENT

The grapes, harvested by hand in the last week of September, are taken immediately to the cellar, in small baskets, to preserve the integrity of the grains.
Macerates for 5 to 10 days on the skins depending on the vintage, in open tanks, at room temperature, with manual punching several times a day, to extract perfumes, tannins and phenols. After maceration, its fermentation continues in barriques and tonneaux, without the addition of selected yeasts and without chemical additives. Aged in wood for approximately 10-12 months and bottled without filtration or clarification.

YOU WILL LOVE IT FOR...

The complexity.


TERRITORY OF ORIGIN

TERROR

In the province of Pisa viticulture has been practiced since the time of the Etruscans. The most representative denomination of origin of the province is Chianti DOCG, with the sub-area "Colline Pisane", and in the superior and reserve types. The most important grape variety grown in the province of Pisa is Sangiovese, together with Ciliegiolo, Canaiolo nero, Malvasia nera and Trebbiano toscano.

The area of ​​the denomination includes the municipalities of San Miniato, Monopoli VA, Fauglia, Lorenzana, Crespina, Palaia, Lajatico, Chianni, Peccioli, Terricciola, Capannoli, Lari, Casciana T., Santa Luce and Pontedera.

In the province of Pisa, the IGT wines of the Costa Toscana IGT and Toscano or Toscana IGT denominations include a great variety of typologies within which there are also "Supertuscans", wines that have a great structure and longevity, aged in barriques or tonneaux.

CELLAR

In Cosimo Maria Masini there is really a lot of passion: the owners, dedicated to other occupations, could have enjoyed the Bonaparte villa and its possessions, but instead they wanted to make wine and biodynamic wine at that. Attention to the environment is their manifesto, as is collaboration with the territory, with the aim of raising awareness of sustainability.

We are in San Miniato, in the province of Pisa, where the Phoenicians already cultivated vines: here, Cosimo Ridolfi, founder of the Faculty of Agriculture of the University of Pisa and already owner of the estate, decided to produce his wine. The beneficial effects of the sea, not far away, are felt in the always ventilated climate, which dries the vineyards and cools the hottest summers. The gentle slopes make processing and harvesting easier - always done strictly by hand - and allow for good drainage.

Respect for Nature is also valorisation of the territory: the company believes in native vines, even little-known ones such as Buonamico and Sanforte, with the aim of preserving and enhancing them.
