ABOUT THE PRODUCER

About Ampeleia Cabernet Franc Toscana IGT

Ampeleia Cabernet Franc Toscana IGT is a juicy, vibrant wine with notes of redcurrants, citrus zest, wet earth, rosemary, and dried flowers. 100% Cabernet Franc, this is part of Ampeleia’s ‘Monovarietali’ project, highlighting single varieties and single vineyards whose special characteristics precluded them from blending in other wines. The grapes are sourced from a single parcel called “Vigna all’Asina,” This vineyard sits at 500 meters above sea level. Fruit was harvested at the beginning of October at yields of 30 hl/ha. Vinification is part carbonic (20% whole cluster) and the rest is destemmed. Macerations lasted around 2 weeks. Aged 9 months in cement 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.
