The Montecucco Sangiovese Riserva Campinuovi is cultivated at an altitude of 350-450 meters with southern exposure on a soil composed of clay sands with a predominant ferrous and limestone matrix. The Montecucco Sangiovese Riserva Campiuovi is harvested manually in boxes with selection in the vineyard and the fermentation is spontaneous in 70 hl Slavonian vats. The Sangiovese Campinuovi ages in 70 hl vats for about 10 months and then in barrels in Slavonian and French oak 20 hl for another 10 months, then aged in bottle for at least 6 months.
NOTES: wine included in the “Interpretations” project and obtained with organically grown grapes certified by CODEX.
“We cultivate our vineyards in compliance with organic and biodynamic agriculture. In our vineyards, we sow and then bury green manure in order to bring organic substance and structure to the ground. In the cellar we vinify in a traditional way without temperature control, without selected yeasts, enzymes and clarification with fermentation on the skins in truncated conical oak vats for at least two weeks, after which we refine our wines in conical 70 Hl oak vats and in 20 Hl oak barrels and bottle them manually without filtration. ” – Nadia Riguccini and Daniele Rosellini
Daniele Rosellini and Nadia Riguccini are the owners of Campinuovi.
Daniele, according to those who know him well, has always had “wine in his blood”. After his Degree in Agricultural Science in Florence, he specialises in Viticulture and Oenology in Turin working on Piemontese grape varieties. The call from his native land, however, was too strong so Daniele returns to Tuscany to collaborate with the University of Florence on a study on Brunello di Montalcino.
In an agrarian microbiology lab, Daniele meets Nadia, the one with “the land in her blood”. Her family, who have been farmers for generations, have transmitted her the passion for such hard but noble work. After her Degree in Agricultural Science in Florence, she deepens her knowledge in organic and biodynamic agriculture as well as skills in business management. From the meeting of Daniele and Nadia, Campinuovi and three beautiful children are born.
