The Eretico is a wine that I decided to start producing as a gift for my 50th birthday and the merlot and sangiovese that compose it come exclusively frommy organic vineyards.
The winemaking is the same as the Nobile: the grapes ferment for about two weeks, in small stainless steel vats and then aged for about 10-12 months in barrels and barrels.
The bottling and then bottle aging complete the production cycle of this wine that as a good traditionalist I decided to call Eretico- “Eretic” because it brings with it the ” innovation” of the international variety. Despite this, the terroir effect predominates and gives to the wine a “classic” Tuscan personalty.
