A racy red offering aromas of wild berry, rose and whiffs of dark culinary spice. Alessandro’s winemaking style is French influenced, with his goal being to create an elegant wine that expresses the terroir, his farming, and that year’s unique vintage.
Spontaneous fermentation uncovered. Other than a small dose of SO2 there are no additives, interventions or manipulations.
Il Molinaccio’s four hectare farm is located due east of Montepulciano in the small hamlet of Cervognano. Winemaker Alessandro Sartini farms organically and uses a Guyot training method as he believes it makes a more elegant and expressive wine from the Prugnolo Gentile varietal of Sangiovese. The property lies at 300 meters above sea level and is composed of Pliocele sand and fossil based soils.
