Winemaker Notes

Serena Gusmeri

Vecchie Terre di Montefili

by Serena Gusmeri
Our newest bottling, since 2015, the Vigna Vecchia is a new pride of Montefili. Our single vineyard of cordoned Sangiovese vines planted in 1981 has very different characteristics from the other Sangiovese plants in our estate. Its sophisticated complexity is combined with exquisite elegance that is evident from the fruit from this very particular plot. In order to make the most of this vineyard's special qualities, and to discover its true identity, we managed the refinement via rotation- first in 30hL barrels, then in 10hL, after which they will be returned again to the 30hL barrels for a few months. The barrel aging will last approximately 26 months, followed by a further 8 in bottle.
