Description

History

The history of Volpaia has always been a story of tradition perfectly fused with innovation, quality and valorisation of the territory, which today has reached the third and fourth generation of the family, with Nicolò and Federica and their children Allegra, Olivia and Tito. The first to glimpse the potential of the area was Raffaello, who used to invite all his friends for large dinners in this enchanting place. Subsequently Carlo and Giovannella dedicated their lives to making Volpaia a place of wine, oil and vinegar of the highest quality. And once again Nicolò and Federica today take care of this legacy made up of timeless values, ensuring that the Volpaia brand is increasingly known and appreciated in Italy and around the world. The company has about 45 hectares all at over 400 m above sea level, which arise on sandstone soils rich in minerals, particularly suited to the production of quality wine; all production is certified BIO.

Grapes used

Sangiovese 90%

Merlot 10%

Production method

The grapes are harvested when they have fully reached polyphenolic ripeness around mid-September. The vinification is traditional in red, with fermentation in steel and maceration of the must on the skins. At the end of this procedure, the wine is drawn off and placed in large 30 hl barrels for refinement which lasts for 12 months. Subsequently the wine is bottled and after another short period of rest the wine is ready to be placed on the market.

Alcohol content

14%

Tasting notes

Intense ruby red color with violet reflections. On the nose notes of fresh red fruit, cherry, raspberry and berries, with notes of violet flowers and spices of black pepper and cloves. Slight herbaceous and mineral note. In the mouth it is soft, enveloping and of medium structure, on the finish it reveals lively and free-range tannins and lively acidity. Overall the wine is balanced and elegant in all its components.

Possible pairings

Perfect on platters of savory cold cuts and mixed cheeses, on first courses with meat and tomato sauce or on the traditional Florentine steak. Suitable for pairing with red meats in general.
