Geoli Rosso 2017

A challenge taken almost ten years ago: bringing back to life the old forgotten family vineyards located in Montemurlo near Prato (Tuscany) and embracing the philosophy of a natural and respectful production. Geolì is a field blend made from SANGIOVESE (90%) and a dash of FOGLIA TONDA (10%) sourced from an old south facing vineyard planted in 1987 on stony tuff soils. Hand harvested grapes are carried to the cellar for the spontaneous fermentation (indigenous yeast only) which takes place in open fermenters. The wine ages for 3 months in used barriques and then 10 months in concrete vats plus 6 months in the bottle before being released to the market. Unfined and unfiltered. The nose recalls the scent of red fruits, on the palate the wine is fresh and flamboyant offering a great joyful drinkability.
