100% Frappato from 25 year old vines grown in shallow white clay over a layer of solid limestone. Naturally fermented with indigenous yeasts in a 20 hectolitre cement tank with 30 days of maceration on its skins. The wine is then aged in the same cement tank for 22 months. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.
‘Here we are situated on a point with high limestone content in the soil, facing the Serra San Bartolo. Here the lands can vary from colours of deep chestnut to white, but the surface’s layer of sand is decisively lower: only 25 cm. Just below this thin layer you willfind solid limestone. In a part of this contrada you will find more clay-limestone soil, visibly different with more of a presence of white on its surface. It’s here, in the Vigna Strada that this wine is born, oral and straightforward, with highly persistent acidity.’ 2700 bottles produced.
