Vintage: 2022
Region: Tuscany, Italy
Viticulture: Organic
Grape varieties: Sangiovese, Cannaiolo, Colorino

Paterna il Rosso Toscana is a seriously old-school take on the traditional Sangiovese blend. For a long time, a small amount of white varieties were blended with Sangiovese and other red varieties to add aroma, acidity, and complexity to the wine. This tastes like Chianti from before you were born. Sour cherry, spice, dried orange, herbal, and rustic tannins. Just a bright, juicy, and fun red to place on a red checker tablecloth.

About Paterna

Paterna is a commune-collective-coop winery and fully functioning farm. In 1985 a small group of friends sought refuge from the encroaching tourism market that we know today as Tuscany. They began with a couple hectares of land and a dilapidated farmhouse, known locally as a ‘casa colonica’ (basically a self-sustaining village where contadini would live and work their land).

Today not much has changed. Paterna continues has grown slowly over the years to what they have now, which is roughly 15 hectares of truly mixed agriculture. Today a group of three young couples guided by Marco and Tamara Scarpellini now inhabit the commune and work with their neighbors (old, toothless Italian guys) to cultivate grapes and many other local products (cheese, honey, salumi, etc).

The farm has been certified organic since its foundation in 1982 and goes beyond that by working completely naturally both in the vineyard and cellars. All fermentations are carried out without added yeasts and little, and more often zero, sulfur is used. Much of the winemaking takes place outdoors in cement vats without temperature control.
