Agriculture has played a part in the Mattioli families life and going back three generations. Located in Umbria they are surrounded by nature and immerse themselves in country life. Along with vines they grow wheat, raise animals and make olive oil from their trees. Following the lunar cycle, they use a range of biodynamic techniques and their own fertilizer to nourish the soils.
Sangiovese is the most planted variety but they also feature other native grapes like Trebbiano that dates back 60years. When it comes to vinification the natural approach continues with as little intervention as possible. They use their basement to provide cool and controlled temperature maturation and bottling is all done by hand.
Viticulture & Winemaking Biodynamic viticulture. Grapes are hand harvested then Indigenous yeasts and spontaneous fermentation. Wine is matured in their basement and all processes are controlled by the lunar calendar. Finished unfined, unfiltered and no added S02.
Region Umbria, Italy
Tasting Notes A real and rugged Sangiovese that has had nothing added or taken away during the winemaking process. Ripe aromas of cherries and violets are met with savoury leather and meaty undertones that offer up comfort in a glass.
