No one would have imagined the year that has passed; 2020 will be remembered as when the world discovered its fragility, both from a medical and an economical point of view.

This year began with the hope vaccines can bring us quickly back to the familiarity we have abandoned  this past year.

As every year, we thank you for the support you gave us during 2020 and for starting new collaborations, in the hope that they will last over time.

The 2020 harvest turned out to be positive as moderate temperatures allowed extended and homogeneous ripening. The alcohol content obtained was in line compared to previous years, but we had a drop in production of about 30%, partly due to changing some vines to the Guiot training method, but largely to the long summer drought.

Suley has now become a best seller and production is growing to meet the demands: Our best-selling white is obtained from the white vinification of Sangiovese grapes, with the addition of small quantities of a traditional Vermentino grape in Maremma.  Once again Suley is a very structured white, with a high alcohol content and has the typical characteristics of Sangiovese balanced out by the freshness and aromaticity of Vermentino.

Given the success of the last two vintages, we have decided to increase the production and release Pasha 2020, obtained from Chardonnay and Vermentino grapes.

But the big news for 2021 is our Oriente, 100% Syrah: After 10 months of aging in steel and 6 in bottle, Oriente is ready for the market. You will be charmed by its intense purple color, intoxicated by its spicy aromas and seduced by its intense and fruity taste.

We have launched Raffaello 2018, a Sangiovese of great power that represents the most classic Tuscan tradition.

Merlot 2019 will be released this year;  we hope to replicate the successes of its 2016 vintage which received 91 points by Luca Maroni, among other recognitions.

Below you will find information on the wines to be released in the coming months.

We hope to able to welcome you to the winery soon and meet in the first confirmed wine fairs.
