ERMETE ROSSO

The vineyard where the grapes for this wine come from is situated at 600m of altitude, one of the highest in Montepulciano. It is rather far away from the town and it is surrounded by woods.
Here the soil is clayish and originally the plants struggled to grow. This resulted in amazing scents in the wine.
Èrmete’s scents and structure are equilibrated, making one of the best examples of Tuscan Sangiovese. The wine-making process happens in cement tanks and rest in bottle.
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.
