Da-Di

Toscana I.G.T. Rosso


A vignonesi goes “Terracotta” on a new Organic Rosso 2018
At Avignonesi, striving for excellence goes hand in hand with experimenting with 100% Tuscan wine-making processes. The intention is to allow the habitat to prevail over foreign influences. For this particular wine, Avignonesi has put aside steel and oak in favour of Tuscan clay.
Chinese for “earth, soil”, the name Da-Di was chosen to underline this particularity.
The clay gives this 100% Sangiovese a vibrant and unvarnished taste of red fruit. Da-Di is bursting with the freshness and elegance typical of amphora-ageing. Medium body, sleek texture and mouth-watering red berries and cherries tantalise the senses, giving way to a soft spicy finish.
Grapes

100% Sangiovese.

Harvest

Between the end of September and the beginning of October.

Vinification

Da-Di is vinified in 12 terracotta vessels made in Tuscany – 6 were manufactured by Artenova in Impruneta, and 6 were manufactured by Laboratorio San Rocco in Torrita di Siena using clay from Mount Amiata. This wine is composed of one-third whole bunches and two-thirds whole berries. Fermentation takes place with indigenous yeast, followed by a daily manual punchdown schedule.

Ageing

Da-Di is blended after three months, then returned to the amphora for an additional two months’ ageing before bottling.
