Traditional and pure. Medium bodied with notes of black cherry, ref fruits, balsamic and forest floor. From vines planted from cuttings planted in 2000. All the grapes are destemmed and then spend a week on skins before being aged in large old oak casks for a year and then three in bottle before being released.
Fabbrica di San Martino is a very ancient winery in Lucca, Toscana. Today the vineyards are between 20 and 70 years old with local, traditional varieties such as ciliegiolo, colorino, canaiolo as well as sangiovese, trebbiano, vermentino and Malvasia.
