Top 4% wine in the world
Blend: 100% Canaiolo
From: Italy, Toscana IGT
By: Fagiuoli family @ Montenidoli
Canaiolo grapes are a rare indigenous variety from Tuscany. A beautiful pink-salmon in colour, it has a delicate nose of red roses and watermelon with a herbaceous finish. The palate begins with full flowery flavours and finishes with a lovely savoury finish.
Elisabetta Fagiuoli and Sergio came to Montenidoli (local word meaning “mountain of the little nests”) in 1965. This hilly land has 24 hectares of vineyards surrounded by 200 hectares of woods right in the heart of Tuscany, near San Giminiano. Agricultural land in the past, it was abandoned by the farmers in the early 1900’s due to the two great wars and the rise of industry. Elisabetta and Sergio planted the vines onto the empty always with the aim of keeping the process as natural as possible with little human interaction. This is nature at its best. Organic certified.
