Pinocchio Sangiovese

The grapes were hand harvested and transported to the winery for immediate destemming. The wine was fermented in open fermenters and hand plunged three times a day during the early stages and pumped over twice a day during the latter stages of the ferment. It was pressed off skins at full dryness to a mixture of three and four year old barrels. We religiously avoid the use of new oak for our Italian varieties as its sweet sappy characters detract from their natural structure and savouriness. After a period of 15 months in oak the wine was filtered in preparation for bottling.
