SUPERTUSCAN SANGIOVESE 
"PRIMUM VINUM" 2018

INDICAZIONE GEOGRAFICA TIPICA

The Primum Vinum is our estate’s signature wine destined to express the full potential of our oldest Sangiovese vines, carefully selected in two separate harvests. The best bunches of Sangiovese are chosen at the end of September and dried in the historical Vinsantaia for 25 days, in order to improve structure, complexity, and smoothness. Our interpretation of Supertuscan represents the flagship of our organic philosophy finalized to valorize the Sangiovese variety and its power to express our terroir. This Supertuscan can age for years but it reaches its peak elegance and varietal expression after 5 years.
