Varietals: 100% Sangiovese.
Area of production: Rufina (Tuscany).
Vineyards are situated 400 mt. above sea level in a rocky soil
particularly rich in limestone which gives Chianti its characteristic.
Age of vineyards: The vineyars were planted between 2000 and
Training system: Guyot.
Production: Approx. 1,5 kg of grapes per vine.
Harvest: Manual in small cases before mid October.
Vinification: Soft destemming of the grapes. Spontaneous
fermentation and maceration in stainless steel at a controlled
temperature for about 10 days with numerous pumpovers and
delestages in order to extract the softer tanins. After the malo-lactic
fermentation, that occurs quickly since there are no sulfites, the wine
is decanted and stored at a temperature of 10° C.
Maturation: In stainless steel for 6 months. The wine is then bottled
to keep all its freshness.
Ageing capacity: 3-4 years.
Sensory characteristics: The wine opens to a thick purple color and
youthful aromas of freshly pressed blackberry and black cherry. In the
mouth it is soft, as sweet almond marzipan plays up the rear, chewy
with a good mineral finish.
Serving suggestions: The style reminds of a novello, but with the
difference that PURO is totally natural, for this it is an easy drinking
and immediatelly approachable wine, that matches perfectly any food,
from starters to dessert (chocolate).
