At last, a bold, peppery and leathery Sangiovese that hits different from Umbria, Tuscany. The fruit was planted on four hectares of rugged hillside vineyards, and farmed without any intervention. The Sangiovese was hand harvested by the Mattioli family and vinified in an open top cement container with minimal sulfur intervention or temperature control. To keep things bright, saline and lifted, the wine was aged in a glass-lined cement tank.
  • The Mattioli family have been operating in a tiny hamlet the Romans once called Collecapretta - “Hill of the Goats.”
  • In addition to farming four hectares of indigenous old vines, the family also grows two hectares of local olive trees and two hectares of ancient grains.
  • The Sangiovese vines grow at 500 meters above sea level, which is fitting – Sangiovese loves altitude.
  • All wines are done in open top cement vats with no temperature control and sulfur additions.

Connects with:

  • Freshly picked tomatoes.
  • Mushroom risotto.
  • Aged cheeses of all kinds - this is very much a “food wine.”
