This is completely different in comparison to the original DOCG Vernaccia. We decided to enhance the particular aroma of this grape with a one-year fermentation in an old terracotta jar. This technique helps the wine to preserve its aromas, keeping all the typical features of this white grape.
The taste is mineral, savory and smooth at the same time due to the oxygenation and the presence of potassium in the terracotta jar.
Raggio d’Anfora is dedicated to Giacomo and his beautiful and radiant smile.
He drew the lovely label and we decided to make it permanent. This label can’t be ruined or deteriorate.
Our “Intenso” is a red wine made with 100% Sangiovese red grape, which they come from a vineyard close to Podere la Marronaia, in San Gimignano. It was fermented in concrete tank with a temperature between 28°C and 30°C (82,4 °F – 86 °F)
It’s a very mature wine, you can definitely feel the essence of the terroir. It’s dedicated to Luigi, because this wine perfectly represents his strong and intense personality.
Both wines, despite the big differences, can be perfectly paired with some starters like cold meats and cheeses.
The Raggio d’Anfora is a white wine so it’s perfect for a summer dinner with fresh and savoury flavors.
The “Intenso” is perfect if it’s paired with cold cuts or truffle, so all the flavors that can’t be covered by the bold aroma of this wine.
