Additional Information

It is commonly thought that clay soil produces more structured wines, but this is not the case at Roccatederighi.

It is here that the “dell’Asina” vineyard (the “Donkey vineyard”), that produces our Cabernet Franc, is located, in soil rich in clay and marked by typical schist and palombino limestone rocks.

This unique land creates a Cabernet Franc that is the expression of pure fruit, with a sincere and vibrant identity.

Agening: 10 months in cement tanks; vinificated with 15% of whole bunch Alcohol: 12.5%
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.
