something
Photo: Dante & Helena — Colombaia is a 4 hectares vineyard south west exposed, rounded by the house and the cave. The soil is clay/calcar full of fossils shells. Dante and Helena work the vineyard as a big garden, the biodynamic method allowed them to work in active perception, following the rhythm of nature, helping the vine to reach in the earth the mineral elements of the soil, and throught the light the essence and freshness of the grapes. The activity in the cave is held in full respect of the fruit keeping intervention as little as possible, acting softly and sensitively. The fermentation is spontaneous with natural grape’s yeasts, working strictly in respect of the vintage. The extraction process is slow and careful, keeping the vital cycles of fermentation, without clarifying, filtering or stabilizing. The unique SO2 added is a tiny dose at the bottling if necessary. Our final product from the old vineyard is Colombaia IGT (a unique wine, that represent our territory and vintage (different colour label for each vintage as a truly reflection of the season of each year), a white wine Bianco Toscano IGT made with Trebbiano and Malvasia grapes, and from the youngest vineyard the red wine VIGNA NUOVA. From 2005,a very limited production from our grapes of Sparkling Rosè (Sangiovese 100%)and White (Trebbiano/Malvasia) “Methode Ancestral” a unique fermentation ending in bottle degorged manually with no added sulphite.
