Syrah from two different parcels of old vineyards harvested on 09/09/2019 and 14/09/2019, spontaneous fermentation in whole bunches in terracotta, 35 days of maceration on the skins, decanted and aged in four old barrels (225l each) and a cement egg (700l) until bottling, without clarification or filtration, the 26/03/2021. No additives added.
The grapes come from the vineyard planted in the 90s by the famous Federico Staderini. The chosen land is surrounded by trees and overlooks the valley, sheltered from the entrance of pests, where you can breathe clean air. The slopes here have imposed a terracing and the workings are all manual. The effort required is great, but the plants know how to repay with an amazing fruit. The reds are part of about 2 ha planted in 2002 with a high plant density, 6,700 plants per hectare.
Do.t.e. is the personal project of Filippo Calabresi that expresses through wine a spontaneity, a story outside of protocols and disciplinary. The commitments of the project are aimed at healthiness, ethics, everyday life. Wine as a medium
to reflect places, activate sensitivity and warm up relationships. Following the lines of the project, the wines are the result of healthy, genuine grapes, grown without the use of chemical shortcuts, as well as in the cellar. Each bottle is a discovery, a journey in itself, proud of any differences and with a unique character. Parallel paths towards a common direction.
Tenimenti D Alessandro
The history of Tenimenti d’Alessandro is closely linked to that of Cortona and its rebirth as a place of excellent wine production. Located in Manzano, in the municipality of Cortona (Arezzo), in south-eastern Tuscany, the property - which today covers about 30 hectares of vineyards, is in Biological Certifcation since 2016 - was purchased in 1967 by the Alessandro family. From the end of the 1980s, here we inaugurate a phase of intense experimentation aimed, above all, at identifying those vines capable of giving the best qualitative results. In 2014, the complex of vineyards and winery was acquired by the Calabresi family who placed the very young and well-trained FIlippo in command. The idea of the wine of this young philosopher is very clear, so much so that Biodynamic practices are drastically applied to all the hectares of property, a choice that will lead to the decision to exit D.O.C. Cortona. Filippo with great tenacity and awareness of the territory in which he finds himself, wants to highlight the character of his wines, building every single detail step by step in vinification.
