Massoferrato Sangiovese 1.0L
Massoferrato is wine made from grapes grown on the Marzovilla family’s Tuscan estate. The family purchased the property in Impruneta, south of Florence, in the 1990s, with a view to one day make their own wine. They planted seven acres of the classic Tuscan variety, Sangiovese. After waiting several years for the vines to mature, they decided to bottle the first vintage in 2008. Sangiovese-expert Massimo Carpini of Podere Casanova consults. The wines are fermented in stainless steel before spending time in custom-made 20-hectoliter barrels of Slavonian oak. Named Massoferrato (“iron boulder”) after the iron-rich rock which overlooks the vineyards, the wines are classified Toscano IGT.
