Raggio d’Anfora is an IGT Tuscan white wine, made with 100% Vernaccia of San Gimignano. The grapes come from an organic vineyard located in Podere le Colonne, in the heart of Tuscany. The vineyard has a south-east exposure to the sun which is the ideal setting for this autochthonous grape. This is the origin of a fresh and structured white wine with 14,5% alcohol content but with a versatile flavor that makes it perfect for an aperitif and a light lunch.

Raggio d’Anfora has become in short time our symbol, a white wine made with pure Vernaccia, enhanced by the fermentation and ageing in terracotta amphorae. The fermentation in the amphorae keeps the wine authentic aromas, preserving perfectly the soil and grape features.

In this way the wine has obtained a very mineral aromas, a strong sapidity and a velvety softness due to the wine oxygenation and the potassium released by the terracotta amphorae.

The vineyard is situated at a height of 300 meters and it has 4000 plants per hectare. The late harvest is in between the months of September and October and it is made exclusively by hand in order to guarantee the optimal wine result. The grapes are left on the vine after the physiological ripening because they need to wither in order to have a higher sugar level. Therefore, we obtain less acid wines with a more intense flavor.

This wine is dedicated to…
