The Primum Vinum is our estate's signature wine, designed to showcase the full potential of our oldest Sangiovese vines. These vines are carefully selected during two separate harvests, and only the best bunches are chosen at the end of September. These selected bunches are then dried in our historical Vinsantaia for 25 days, resulting in improved structure, complexity, and smoothness. Our Supertuscan interpretation is the flagship of our organic philosophy, aimed at enhancing the Sangiovese variety and its ability to express our terroir. This Supertuscan can age for years, but it reaches its peak of elegance and varietal expression after 5 years.
