Vibrant and full aromas of cherry, dark raspberry, plum and black tea. Juicy and fruit-driven, with just enough structure to keep it refreshing. An absolute joy to drink.A 50/50 blend of sangiovese and montepulciano, fermentation with natural yeasts in concrete, 20 days’ maceration, followed by 3 months resting & 3 months in bottle before release.
A third-generation family farm run by the charismatic Natalino Crognaletti in the Marche region of central Italy. The estate is farmed organically and biodynamically. A glance at the wine labels will reveal that Natalino is an animal lover, and the estate is run to be home not just to healthy vines, but to the many animals that reside there.
The white wines are made from the local verdicchio grape, and gain rich, nutty complexity without any use of oak. Natalino’s father, Gino, dedicated his life to collecting and studying clones of verdicchio, and one of Natalino’s vineyards is dedicated to him. The reds are a blend of montepulciano and sangiovese. All the wines display tremendous intensity without heaviness, thanks to a pronounced mineral character and well-integrated acidity
