Sanforte is a rare indigenous grape variety that has found its ideal environment in our terroir. It grows in our 65-year old vineyard, from whose origin selected shoots were grafted on two more plots. Sanforte proves to be a healthy grape, naturally at ease in our vineyards, fully expressing its tipicity. DNA – Analysis of latest research has proven what we had witnessed over the years while tending this variety – it is a unique variety, clearly distinct from Sangiovese. For a few years, we have vinified Sanforte in small quantities to fully understand its characteristics. The 2016 vintage represents our first bottling of a 100% Sanforte.
