Details

Tin Bianco Amphora Montesecondo 2016, 100% Trebbiano, Orange Wine, no added sulphur, rich and complex, very fresh, superb. The TIN is fermented and matured in Amphorae, not particularly common in Chianti, an area still rife with big industrial scale production. Amphorae always make for very elegant and fresh wines that seem to be full of energy and life. You truly taste biodynamic forces at play and this life-force in the wine gives it fantastic ageing potential. If it makes it that far, they only make a few thousand bottles! The grapes come from old-vine, biodynamically farmed estate fruit that is hand-harvested and undergoes natural fermentation in 250-to-350-litre clay amphorae. The skin maceration takes place over 6 months. The wine is bottled without filtration or fining.

Silvio Messana with his wife Catalina took over the Montesecondo estate in 1999. Originally created in the 1970's by his father who planted the vineyards, the grapes used to be sold in bulk by his mother who was running the estate after the death of her Silvio's father. Silvio soon started making wine and his very first vintage was produced in 2000. Surrounded by olive groves in Cerbaia val di Pesa. The 11.5 hectares of vineyards are planted on calcareous and clay soils with sandy areas which produce lush soft wines. Silvio mainly cultivates old vines (35 years old on average) of Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Colorino, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Everything is biodynamic, and they manage to obtain naturally low yields (30hl/ha) from the vigorous Sangiovese vines and great fruit that genuinely express their terroir.
