Additional Information

Ampeleia represents the origin and the evolution of the winery, mainly Cabernet Franc with a small portion of Sangiovese until 2014. Starting from the 2015 vintage, Ampeleia is the harmonic union of the different Cabernet Franc parcels of Ampeleia di Sopra. Ampeleia is the best expression of Roccatederighi’s terroir. Vinification: The harvest happens from the 20th of September to the 5th of October - the wine is aged for 12 months in wooden barrels and concrete tanks, and spends at least 2 years in the bottle. Alcohol: 13%
something
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 characterises 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.
