Product reviews
Jaspidem is the Latin term for the Jasper stone. Its colour ranges from a bright green to red or sandy pink. It is one of the oldest known gemstones and considered to symbolise the earth, as it is grounding and nurturing. This is 100% Sangiovese Rose fermented and aged in stainless steel vats of 20hl with temperature control

Brightly coloured with subtle new copper, melon and raspberry pink tonalities. The aromas are red currant, red apple through to medlar and the pure palate offers wild strawberry, followed by notes of ‘giuggiola’ with a salted caramel, almost marine finish. There is fresh acidity, precise fruity tanin and a good length with a pleasantly dry finish.

The vineyard at the Castello di Potentino is situated on the slopes of the highest peak in Tuscany, Monte Amiata, an extinct volcano. The estate is located about 30miles from the Montalcino DOCG area, separated by the river Orcia, in the recently created (1998) Montecucco DOC.

The low, sheltered valley provides summertime hot days but cold nights as the cool air comes down from the mountain. The earth is volcanic, geologically very new, mineral rich and the basin-like shape has of the estate vineyard has helped avoid erosion over the millennia and . This minerality creates a notably sapid and fine wine, with subtle bouquets and a rich but not heavy body. Vines have gown here since the time of the Etruscans and the location has helped protect from the impact from intensive monoculture. Only wild yeasts are used in the production of the wines and alongside large oak (5hl), minimal fining and filtration and low levels of added sulphur the potential of the estate’s grapes are allowed to shine.
