Carla 6 2013

Carla 6 comes from the desire of Giampaolo and his friend and advisor Stephane Derenouncourt to compete and collide with a vine among the most difficult and unruly: the Sangiovese. Coming exclusively from vineyard No. 6: a unique substrate of gray schist and sand, which gives the wine great minerality and splendid notes of graphite. A pure Sangiovese, vinified and aged individually in French oak tonneaux.

100% Sangiovese

2013 can be characterized like an excellent growing season. After a regular germination, temperatures below average in May slowed plant growth. The development has resumed its normal course during the summer, facilitated by good temperatures and short rains at regular intervals. Little rainfall in early September allowed the plants to reach an optimum level of phenolic ripeness and we did the harvest on 3rd of October.

The single bottling took place in october 2015

The year 2013 is a further confirmation that the new cellar allowed us to improve the quality of our wines. Spontaneous fermentations, extractions using the punching down method, pumping with peristaltic pumps, strict control of temperature and continuous tastings are the main processes that have allowed us to express the full potential of the grapes harvested. The wines were then aged in 30% new French oak barrels which improve the structure and aromatic sensation.

The 2013 vintage produced 5.500 bottles.
