Maremma Toscana d.o.c.
Grapes: Ciliegiolo 100%
Monte Calvo is a small volcano belonging to the Volsini Volcanic District and, as Poggio Pinzo, gives its name to one of our ciliegiolo wines that focus on the research on the volcanic terroir.
This ciliegiolo has been selected in a specific and homogeneous polygon within the old San Lorenzo vineyard.
The vinification of Monte Calvo takes place in steel vats; then it ages in big barrels for 12 months and then bottled. Stays in bottle for about 6 months before being sold. Red ruby with purple notes, quite vibrant. In its bouquet you can detect aromatic herbs, turmeric, iris, a somewhat wild note. It is smooth and elegant, the wood perfectly balanced, with an extra note of white pepper.
The extreme variability of the soils in this vineyard has led to the design of a new vineyard, side by side to the San Lorenzo Vineyard, made of seven different micro terroirs potentially leading to seven different ciliegiolo wines, so to demonstrate the importance of the mineral matrix and its influence in the wine.
