Tedicciolo

Toscana Rosso I.G.T.

The wine is produced from the Sangiovese grapes from our younger vineyards and is our daily table wine which marries the drinkability of Sangiovese wine, which is typical of the Montepulciano area, with the fruitiness of Merlot grapes, which have been introduced in small quantities in our production.This is a wine which adapts itself to all manners of traditional culinary plates and can evolve, interestingly, by further careful cellaring in bottles.

Production techniques

  • Fermentation
    After being carefully hand- picked the grapes are stored in smallish containers to optimise the extractions from the skins. The fermentation is continued without added yeasts, but using the natural soil . The contact with the skins goes on for 15 days during which time gentle stirrings are conducted to gain more delicate flavourings.
  • Maturation
    The wine is then transferred to barrels of Slovenian oak for a further 12 months of fermentation, during which time the wine is transferred around to clarify it before bottling takes place. This clarification of the wine is done by very bland and light filtration to maintain the qualities inherent in the wine.
  • Cellaring
    Keeping the wine in bottles for a further 8 months.
