Made from the oldest vines of the Salco vineyard, the most mature and important of our estate. This wine, son of the historical experience made over this incredible vineyard, is made of Sangiovese Prugnolo Gentile “in purezza” (or 100%), vinified in Slavonian oak casks and aged in those woods and in French oak tonneaux for two years.

Winemaker Notes

Michele Manelli

Salcheto

by Michele Manelli
Michele Manelli has being growing for over 20 years as a winemaker, together with the Salco vineyard: a field of 2ha, with vines of 29-31 years of age, entirely cultivated with a clone of Sangiovese Prugnolo Gentile selected at the winery that at each harvest easily reaches a slight overripe. Since vintage 2015 he thought the moment had come to create “Vecchie Viti del Salco” (or Salco Old Vines), telling this wine story from a different perspective, once again.
