Rosso Volpaio

Year 2011


A cheerful and balanced IGT Tuscan wine.

It has a ruby red colour tending to purple. It greets us on the nose with an intense floral aroma with clear hints of small red berries. It recalls fruity experiences on the palate, with a not particularly persistent finish but overall cheerful and balanced.

Wine-making techniques

The Rosso Volpaio red wine is produced exclusively from grapes grown on the same-name estate located on the slopes of Montalbano in the municipality of Vinci. Our vineyards are divided into many plots away from each other, each with its own distinct features; the selected grapes come precisely from all these areas, thereby representing the highest expression of the territory, in a mix of red-berried native varieties which belong exclusively to the terroir where they have always been cultivated in typical Tuscan tradition. The fermentation and maceration were carried out in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks for a period of about 10-15 days at a temperature of 28-30°C. The malolactic fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks and was completed by the year-end. The wine was then racked and placed into concrete tanks where it aged for 6-8 months, after which it was bottled. This was followed by an ageing in the bottle of 4-6 months before being placed on the market.
