Production information

Producer: Villa di Campobello

Since 1903 Castellani has been exporting its estate wines from Tuscany. Working hard within the vineyard the team ensure the best soil types, microclimates and light exposure to the grapes. Sophisticated oenological techniques and an intensive research programme focusing on the use of different clones have allowed them to valorise the great Tuscan vines, such as Sangiovese. Their vision is to create the best wines possible, blending a sense of place and tradition with their modern practices.

Production note

Completely mature grapes are harvested from vineyards and crushed almost immediately. Afterwards the grapes are poured in large inox tanks for fermentation. The primary fermentation evolves at a controlled temperature of 23 to 24°C for a certain period until the extraction of 25 to 30gr of sugar. When the primary fermentation is perfect, the wine is filtered and stored at a constant temperature in Slavonian oak casks for a minimum period of 24 months.
