Barcaiolo is a classic, one of those wine which is not easy to find. It is totally organic: zero chemestry, just grapes.
The soil where the grapes are grown is most lysilt. This wine’s structure and equilibriumis common to all Podere della Bruciata’s wines.
The wine-making process happens in concrete barrels and then the wine rests in bottles.
Particularity The grapes are Sangiovese and Petit Verdot, and the latter has been grown in an old vineyard.
The grape selection is very important and only the best ones are chosen, therefore the production is quite low about 50-60 q per hectar.
The fermentation happens thanks to natural yeasts in cement tanks without the temperature control. The wine is not filtrated in order to maintain its characteristics and there is also a low use of sulphites.
