Raggio
d' Anfora
Terracotta Wine
Ancient Method

Raggio d’Anfora is an IGT Tuscan white wine made with 100% Vernaccia of San Gimignano. These grapes are grown in the Podere le Colonne vineyard on the hills of San Gimignano. The lack of pesticides in the soil, natural minerality, and southeast exposure during the hot Tuscan summer, makes this is the ideal habitat for cultivating the Vernaccia di San Gimignano grape. The vineyard is situated at a height of 300 meters/984 feet, and it has 4000 plants per hectare. The late harvest is between September and October, and it is made exclusively by hand to guarantee the optimal wine result. The grapes are left on the vine after ripening to maintain a high sugar level.

Raggio d’Anfora has become, in a short time, our symbol, a white wine made with pure Vernaccia, enhanced by the fermentation and aging in terracotta amphorae. The fermentation in the amphorae maintains the wine’s authentic aromas. Due to the wine oxygenation and the potassium released by the terracotta amphorae, the wine has mineral aromas paired with a velvety softness.

DEDICATION

Raggio d’Anfora is dedicated to Giacomo and his warm smile that brightens every day. Giacomo is the author of the label and we want to say a very big “Thank You” for all of his help.
