Details

Ampeleia 'Unilitro' Rosso Toscano, biodynamic wine, litre bottle, Mediterranean blend, aged in concrete, very fresh red wine, notes of black olive, red fruits and Mediterranean herbs. The wine 'Unlitro' – meaning one litre of Ampeleia – is an expression of Ampeleia's vitality and subtly delicate nature. The wine is predominantly Alicante, the local name for Grenache with a little Carignan and Alicante Bouschet, - one of those rare grapes with red pulp. Balsamic character on the nose, wild herbs and spices hints. Well defined on the palate, clear-cut and neat. Contrasting finish with pleasantly bitter notes of cherries and wild strawberries. Nice served lightly chilled when warm outside, eat with 'Caponata' and fennel sausage.

Ampeleia was born in 2002 from the collaboration and friendship between Elisabetta Foradori, Thomas Widmann and Giovanni Podini. They saw in Ampeleia a place where they could not only develop an agricultural project but also fulfil a common vision relating to shared values and experiences. The vineyards were converted to biodynamic farming in 2009. All the wines here are made by respecting the natural processes transforming grapes to wine, aiming for a true expression of its land of origin. The wines are pure and expressive, plenty of crunchy acidity to cut through classic Tuscan cuisine. The wines are bottled without fining or filtration, and very little sulphur. Fermentation takes place naturally in amphora.
