Sangiovese is harvested in the second week of September. The grape skins are immediately separated from the must with a soft pressing. Fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled, stainless steel tanks, using dry ice to prevent contact with the air. This is done to enhance the bouquet and pink color. Fermentation at 64°C lasts roughly 21 days. The wine, after the first racking, is left on its lees up to 15 days before bottling.
The Poggetti Estate lies in the Northern part of the Tuscan Maremma, among rolling hillsides just 7 km from the Tyrrhenian Sea. It extends over an area of 423 hectares (1,045 acres), of which about 37 hectares (91 acres) are dedicated to vines. The vines benefit from hot temperatures, long sun exposure, and cool evenings during the growing season. The vineyard's proximity to the sea lends its wines a particularly appreciated salinity and minerality. The dynamic, mineral-rich soil typical of the Metallurgic Hills endows the grapes grown on it with rich tannins and great personality.
