Red blend of classic Italian varieties
Tastes of dark spices combined with fresh red & blueberries. A liter of easy drinking medium bodied Tuscan field blend.
Sowing the seed in 2003, Michael Schmelzer, who is American, moved to Italy with
his family and purchased 10ha of organic vineyards, in the “belly button of Chianti Classico” at Monte Bernardi. When he planted in 2005 and began farming biodynamically, he did not yet know what it would entail or how difficult it would be. However he did know that conventional vineyards tend to spray when it rains, to help prevent the grapes from rotting, and that these chemicals simply wash off of the vines and into the soil. Schmelzer decided that if he built healthy vine from the roots up then he would have healthy vineyard that were less affected by mold and pests.
