MAKER San Biagio Vecchio
GRAPES 100% Sangiovese
The vineyards of San Biagio Vecchio extend over 11 hectares on soils composed of yellow sands, which are typical of the area. The vines cultivated are mainly Albana, Malvasia Aromatica, Trebbiano Romagnolo, Sangiovese and Centesimino. These grapes are mostly native and characteristic of the area, and in this corner of the land they have found the best conditions to give birth to unique expressions of great territorial attachment. The vines are trained to the Guyot system and, facing the sea, provide the backdrop for a seductive landscape. The breezes that rise from the Adriatic, the pleasant Romagna sun and the good range between night and day create a terroir that seems to have been designed by Mother Nature to cultivate grapes. Agricultural practices are based on tradition and the principles of organic agriculture, which has been certified since 2016.
For the harvest, the grapes are selected by hand and transported in boxes to the cellar. Only indigenous yeasts are used for vinification and the general approach is to reduce the use of chemicals to a minimum both in the vineyard and in the cellar. According to Antonio, man must accompany the processes without intervening and without hindering the course of nature.
