Product reviews
Blend of Merlot (50%), Cabernet Sauvignon & Sangiovese (25% each) - primary fresh fruits, notes alongside balsamic notes and rich in pliant ripe tannins carying great perfume and texture.

Harvested by hand and each variety is fermented in wooden barrels of 33 hl size with the natural yeasts only. The cap is pushed down by hand twice a day and in the first days of fermentation with frequenst delastages to let the must breathe. Normally the fermentations takes 2 weeks for each variety, after that the wine is blended and passes into 2 and 3 years old barriques where naturally runs the malolactic fermentation and rests for 12 months it is bottled without undergoing any filtration or fining.

Fabio Motta founded his winery in 2009 with the acquisition of 4 hectares of vines planted in 1997 within the DOC of Bolgheri.

The location is excellent: facing the sea, at the foot of the characteristic rolling hills of Bolgheri, with a south-west exposure. But Fabio Motta was not a novice in Bolgheri. In addition to a degree in agriculture he worked for many years alongside the esteemed producer Michele Satta, as well as his father-in-law.

Fabio's wines respect and reflect the distinctive features of this terroir, interpreted according to the characteristics of each harvest.

In the cellar, Fabio works in a simple way, following his philosophy of "non-interference", using natural yeasts and no filtering of wines, which excel in elegance and complexity rather than in power and concentration.

In 2015 Fabio started converting his vineyards into biodynamic.
