Steccofino

A wine from our family tradition
Ruby red, clear, with purple reflections typical in a young wine. The first taste has red and black fruits hints, such as sour cherry, plum, blueberry and blackberry combined with violet. The wine has some spicy, refreshing hints even though 2017 wine of the year wasn't aged in wooden barrels. Appreciable acidity and tannin content. The persistance of the taste is good, with hints of red fruits, as sour cherry, plum and blueberry. You can notice the genuineness of the wine. Steccofino 2017 and 2018 is San Giovese for most, Merlot, Canaiolo and Ciliegiolo, as it used. The grape were planted in the 60s in San Martino in Vignale (Lucca) which is 150 meters high on sea level. Fields are south exposed while rows run east. Half hectare has producted not more than 10, 11 quintals of wine, from which we got 6 quintals that are gonna be bottled in february. These bottles are identified with 30052017 number. In our vineyard, we use only bio certified fertilisers and plants are treated only with copper and sulphur without any herbicide. The lawn is mowed with little tools "frullino" or "trincia". Prunings are all made manually with scissors using the Guyot method. Steccofino 2019 has the distinction of having passed 10 months in barriques of third passage.
