Puro Riserva

“We created this wine in 2014. We realized that, contrary to popular belief, sulfite-free wine could most definitely age and even improve in barrels”

« The Audacious »

By creating PURO, the first Chianti without added sulfites, we wished to demonstrate that even without sulfites, wine can age. The grapes need to be ripe, healthy and intact for this to happen.

This wine is produced and made from older vines than the Puro, using 100% Sangiovese vinified in stainless steel tanks and aged in oak for 12 months, with no addition of sulfites at any stage.

Climatic conditions
We particularly remember 2011 for its two-part August. The first 15 days were relatively cool with days not exceeding 30°C and cold nights. In the second half of August, however, the sunshine was better and more powerful, allowing the grape varieties, particularly Sangiovese, to develop healthy, mature bunches that were concentrated and rich in polyphenols.

Climatic conditions
The 2013 vintage was impacted by a harsh winter with alternating sub-zero temperatures and heavy snowfalls. The spring was cool and rainy. However, despite a cool summer overall compared to previous seasons, a few heat spikes boosted the Sangiovese veraison period. Finally, the fluctuations in daytime and night-time temperatures favoured a progressive ripening phase.

Production
1,200 bottles produced

Climatic conditions
In 2014, the relatively warm winter weather and the mild spring were the triggers for an early budding phase. However, the rainfall spread throughout the winter period rebalanced the vegetative cycle to allow the summer to accomplish its task gently: veraison. Thus, the bunches were able to mature progressively for an optimal harvest.

Production
1,333 bottles produced

Climatic conditions
The winter of 2015 came later in our region, thus slowing down the vegetative awakening of the vines and the crying period by about ten days. Spring arrived at the right time, offering the vineyards a flowering period punctuated by sunny days and some rainfall. Finally, the long summer, with high temperatures exceeding 30°C and ideal climatic conditions, gave our grapes an ideal ripening.

Production
10,000 bottles produced

Climatic conditions
The 2016 vintage is a great year that the winegrowers of our region still remember. In addition to having benefited from a late spring, it was mainly the abundant rainfall during the flowering period that contributed to the success of this season. Then, the warm and sunny summer allowed the grape varieties to ripen earlier for an optimal harvest and in particular a Sangiovese harvest of exceptional quality.
