Rancore is my dream.

The dream to being able to give something to myself and others. The home of this wine are the Chianti hills in S. Martino a Strada. Theis wine express my desire to try to find the possible interpretation of what vines can give us year after year. In spite of its name linked to a moment of disillusionment for bitterness that life sometimes presents us, this wine shows my wish to live in harmony with what we have around us, at the search of the symbiosis between knowledge and human insights and the secrets and mysteries of nature.

Varieties: The Tuscan Sangiovese is the variety that I love and represents the majority of grapes for this wine, by the use of different clones that I have researched and selected over many years in the vineyards of Tuscany.  Merlot accounts for 15% of grapes and provides the international touch. The 5% Pinot is the irrational essence of the project, due to my love for this grape and its wine.

The Vineyard: The vineyard was planted in 1997 in a marl soil of medium texture, moderately calcareous at in density of 7000 plants/ha in chianti hills at an altitude of about 200 meters, facing west / southwest to the Sangiovese, Merlot and east to the northeast for Pinot. Given my need to work myself during all vineyard and cellar operation allows me to determine ultimate wine quality.

Wine: The wine is the perfect union of the grapes, which are harvested separately and blended before aging in barrels where the wine evolves for a time ranging from 12 to 16 months. Yield control and grape ripening as well as long skin contact followed by aging in one-year old French barrels create the main character of this wine.

I hope that, by tasting it, you can understand my boundless love for my region and for this fantastic adventure is to make fine wine.
