IGT Sangiovese Merlot

Podere Il Caio


Scheda tecnica

Podere Il Caio

This wine is a blend of Sangiovese and Merlot grapes from diverse areas of our Estate with various exposures and altitudes and a soil rich in sand and clay.
Our attention goes to the vines in order to archive a wine expression of our territory.
Grapes are picked separately once the phenolic phases are completed.

Production zoneHilly slope at 150-300m above sea level with South/south-westerly exposure.
