  • products/Salita_2016_1_297e31f8-cddb-4ed9-af84-3efb29ed891c.png

Salita entsteht ausschließlich aus unserem kostbarsten Weinberg, unserem Grand Cru. In die fünfzehn höchsten Terrassen, die zum Weingut führen, passen nur in ein bis drei Reihen Sangiovese-Buschreben. Ein einzigartiger Ausdruck von Castagnoli‘s Terroir.

Maturation & Refinement

Aged for 24 months in French Oak Barriques and refined in bottle for a minimum of seven months before release.

Our Grand Cru: Salita

Form of Growing

Alberello

Vinification

Grapes are picked by hand in small boxes. Alcoholic fermentation is spontaneous with natural yeasts in 1 ton vats. The extraction of color and tannins is facilitaed by punching down. Maceration of skins is occuring very delicately: Berries are falling from the destemmer directly into the vats without passing through a pump or tubes, hence remaining intact and crush solely due to the weight of berries themselves. Malolactic fermentation takes place in neutral barriques.

Salita ist unsere wahrhaftigste und einzigartigste Darstellung von Sangiovese in Castagnoli. Olivenbäume wachsen zusammen mit den Salita Alberello-Buschreben, wie es in der Toskana seit Jahrhunderten traditionell gemacht wird. Auf der höchsten Erhebung von Castagnoli, 450 Metern über dem Meeresspiegel, erzeugen die Reben faszinierende Komplexität und Charakter.

James Suckling

92 Points: "Attractively fresh and juicy red cherry aromas lead to a palate that has a very smooth, supple and elegant core of fresh, juicy tannins. Drink or hold."

Falstaff

91 Points: "Shining ruby red. In the nose, emphatically elegant woody spice, of vanilla, blackberries, reminiscent of light caramel, followed by dried violet leaf in the aftertaste. Appears with a juicy nerve on the palate, present, non-invasive wood, dark berry fruit rounds off the finale."
