One of the absolute high flyers of the Italian wine world comes from the sleepy town of Castagneto Carducci, about 50 kilometers south of Livno on Siena. Enrico Santini is one of the best Tuscan farms in just three years. He owns internationally popular varieties such as Merlot and Syrah, as well as local Sangiovese and Vermentino grapes, which produce top quality wines. “Poggio al Moro” is considered to be the base wine of the top wine “Montepergoli”.
It consists of 30% Sangiovese, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Syrah and 30% Merlot. After selective hand-picking in small handmade paper weighing up to 18 kg, the base wines are each matured for 3-4 weeks and immersed in the temperature control. These wines were then aged for a short time in new French wooden barrels, and after the final joint brewing, the total production reached 20,000 bottles.
