ABOUT THE PRODUCER

About Ampeleia Alicante Nero Toscana IGT

Ampeleia Alicante Nero Toscana IGT is surprising and enjoyable due to its dual nature. Behind the joyful and fresh character lies elegance and a unique finesse. It captivates you with its strawberry and floral notes and then grabs you with notes of earth, graphite, and spices. Alicante Nero is believed to be one of the most genuine varieties of Maremma. This is one of Ampeleia’s single varieties coming from the single vineyard of La Pieve where it feels at home in the clay soils. The wine undergoes 20% whole cluster fermentation. Aging is complete after ten months in concrete tanks.

About Ampeleia

From the Winery:

Ampeleia is a winery in the Upper Maremma region of Tuscany, located in Roccatederighi, a medieval town in the province of Grosseto. It is managed by a group of young people guided by vigneron and company manager Marco Tait, who took the reins when he was just 22. In almost twenty years of activity, we have converted our production first into organic and then into biodynamic. The character of Ampeleia has its roots in Cabernet Franc, the grape variety that best expresses the identity of the terroirs, while at the same time telling its story. Ampeleia is at the heart of the Colline Metallifere National Geopark (UNESCO Heritage). An area of exceptional geological interest that characterizes all our lands and guides us in our conscientious work, first in the vineyard and then in the cellar. Our wines speak of a territory formed of highs and lows, of history and innovation, of asperity and love. Cabernet Franc is the grape variety that best expresses the identity of our territory.
