The Wine

Selected from our three best sites, our signature Pietra Rossa Sangiovese—named for the red soil in which it’s grown—displays a rich and complex balance of herbs, plums and spices. Enjoy today or cellar up to 15 years. A Sangiovese as rich and textural as this, deserves a feast to match. Consider Bistecca Florentina—Chianina Beef, grilled over redhot coals and brushed with olive oil, rosemary and sage.


The Sangiovese grapes are machine picked and then fermented with a yeast called BM45, made famous in Tuscany for making great Brunello wines. The ferment temperatures reach and are maintained at, 30°C. A hotter fermentation extracts maximum colour, flavour and tannin from the fruit. This heat also helps soften the tannins in the wine through the polymerisation process. Once the wine finishes alcoholic fermentation, the free run juice is drained and skins are lightly pressed. The wine settles for a day before being transferred to barrels for malic acid fermentation and barrel aging for 14 months. The wine is then blended, fined and bottled.
