IGT Toscana Alicante Nero

Alicante

Biodynamic viticulture also means rediscovering traditions, abandoned in favour of more commercial non-native varieties. Alicante Nero represents our way of making wine.

Alicante Nero is a native variety of Upper Maremma, which was removed to make space for other varieties with deeper colours and stronger bodies.

We returned it to its native land in 2003, when we tenaciously started to plant Alicante vineyards, with the strong belief that this grape variety could be the most genuine and authentic expression of the Mediterranean Maremma.

We were right and today it is one of our most precious gems. It has found its natural habitat in the “La Pieve” vineyards: clay soils mixed with pebbles and conglomerates give a light, delicate and harmonious character.

Data sheet

A wine that is surprising and enjoyable due to its dual nature. Behind the joyful and fresh character lies an elegance and a unique finesse. It captivates you with its strawberry and floral notes and then grabs you with notes of earth, graphite and spices.
