Winemaker, Silvio left the hustle of the New York wine scene in the early 90's to take over his father's family vineyard in Tuscany. Lined with forests and olive trees, the Montesecondo estate sold its grapes for bulk back then. But as Silvio grew a liking to a more organic, biodynamic approach in his wines, he began new farming practices and began to bottle his wines. As some of the government rules don't necessarily apply to Silvio's wines, he bottles all but one of them as IGT.
Mostly Trebbiano with a small amount of co-planted Malvasia from the original Montesecondo vineyard. Fruit is de-stemmed and placed directly in clay amphorae. No sulfur, 6-8 months on the lees with no fining or filtration at bottling. Rich and complex. White flowers, honey, clove, citrus. Thick and fleshy but super fresh.
