Altura Rosetto di Sangiovese 2021

  • Sold out

The Altura project is an homage to the island of Giglio and how it tranformed Francesco Carfagna's life. For those unfamiliar with Giglio it's a small island 10 miles off the coast of Tuscany and only accessible by water ferry. The island is small, mostly mountaneous and 90% covered in vegetation. While it densly populated in the summer, fewer than 600 people live there year round. Francesco Carfagna is one of them.

A short, four or five day maceration is done in stainless steel. The wine ferments in stainless and ages in barrel. This is one salty and savory chillable red, laced with luscious red fruit and black olive notes. Begging for a bowl of shellfish and tomato or some anchovy toasts with cultured butter.
