In the Tuscan region, for the last twenty years or so, a great interest has risen in the research and rescue of old native vines with some quality factors able to appeal to the modern consumer.
One of the more interesting discovery concerns
a very particular vine called PUGNITELLO.
The name comes from the shape of its bunch resembling a fist, 'pugno' in Italian.
Following the philosophy of our work, which wants to emphasizes the native vines, we planted in 2004 around 2600 plants of Pugnitello.
The Wine shows a firm and dark colour. The bouquet is complex, with flowers, berries and black pepper emerging. The aftertaste is persistent and surprisingly, flowers and fruits merge compact together. The wine has been obtained with traditional fermentation at controlled temperature and aged for over a year in oak barriques.
