Selection and sorting

Selection and sorting

Only the finest fruit from select varieties: Sangiovese and Trebbiano grown at Castello del Trebbio, Syrah, Ansonica and Moscato from Tenuta Casadei, Cannonau, Nasco, Malvasia and Semidano from Olianas.

Amphorae are neutral vessels that act as “loudspeakers” amplifying the grapes’ characteristics. Quality is essential, and Elena leaves no stone unturned to guarantee it. She chose the varieties most suited for her amphorae after countless trials, and, year after year, selects the grapes by tasting them carefully and checking the pulp, skin, and pedicels. The vineyard staff harvests the fruit, choosing only the finest bunches. Once in the cellar, the grapes are placed on vibrant sorting tables and sorted once again, berry by berry.

As harvest time draws near, Elena visits the family vineyards, selects the finest grapes, and chooses the amphorae for each. Thus begins a new adventure.

CASTELLO DEL TREBBIO

"It was incredible: fruity, intense, and ruby red! I grew up with Sangiovese and realizing I could highlight its flavor, tannins, and fruit was thrilling!" Elena smiles happily, describing her first amphora Sangiovese. Alongside this variety, she also works with Trebbiano, another iconic grape grown at Castello del Trebbio.

TENUTA CASADEI

Amphorae magnify the inimitable flavor of the Syrah grapes that grow in Suvereto’s mineral-rich soils… that’s why my Syrah is so gorgeously spicy!” Elena recounts. Among the varieties farmed at Tenuta Casadei, she also uses Moscato and Ansonica, both ideal for amphora vinification and aging.

OLIANAS

Amphora Cannonau is round, fresh, and bursting with fruit and color!”  exclaims Elena. Alongside Cannonau DOCG, she works with three other indigenous varieties grown at Olianas: Semidano for her signature Migiu, and Malvasia and Nasco, the grapes that yield her Malvasco.
