“Cinque”, Toscana Rosso
The “second wine” of the estate, sold only at the cellar since 1990 but now made from a newly acquired parcel with very rocky limestone soils in Castelnuovo Berardenga just outside the Chianti Classico zone. Giovanna supplements it with certain vats of the first wine, Le Trame, that don’t make the cut, often a significant proportion. Aged for one year in wood vats (5-30 hl) and bottled in the spring. The cuvée name refers to several numerlogical coincidences, including the five grapes of the estate (Sangiovese, Caniolo, Colorino, Mammolo, Fogliatonda), the five leaves and flowers a grape vine has per bunch, and their home address.
