“La Furba”

TOSCANA SANGIOVESE I.G.T

La Furba – “The Sly One” – like the fox who stole the Thanksgiving turkey the evening before the celebrations, under the noses of the whole family who were reunited for the occasion!

We decided to celebrate this animal by dedicating a wine to it: an aromatic, fruity Sangiovese, with a determined personality.

One to be savored slowly.

Vinification and maturation

Lit is vinified in a cocciopesto amphora containing 10hl, with 10% of whole bunches and the rest crushed and destemmed. Following its alcoholic fermentation using indigenous yeasts, the wine macerates on the skins for 6 months inside the amphora. It is removed from this container in mid-March and is then left to settle and clear naturally in a stainless-steel tank. Bottling takes place during the summer following the harvest.

The combination of whole bunches and an inert, porous container has given rise – in this original expression of Sangiovese – to an extraordinary purity.
