Background

"Four generations of the Paolini family have nurtured a tiny plot of land (just 3.5 hectares) just outside the wine hill town of Montepulciano to produce an outstanding and natural Vino Nobile. Currently at the helm is Eugenia who took over as winemaker after her husband Sergio died in 2014. This wine comes formatted in 1 liter bottles and is simply described as a *"natural cure for thirst and little problems". Created as an elevated take on Tuscan table wine it is a delightful, fresh wine that will make you fall in love at the first sip.

VINEYARD:
The vineyard is located outside of the small town of Acquaviva below Montepulciano on a south facing hill. Eugenia's son has a masters in herbology and applies his knowledge to natural farming, adding value to the winery by bringing new and experimental biodynamic treatments made of herbs and seaweed so they don't have to even use organic treatments such as copper and sulfur in the vineyard. Growing exceptional grapes through biodynamic farming is Luteraia's main focus.

WINEMAKING:
This wine uses the grapes from the youngest Sangiovese vines that grow right next to Trebbiano. They are picked together and spontaneously co-fermented with native yeast together in the ancient Tuscan tradition. Aged for a few months in stainless steel the wine is then bottled and designed to drink young. Andrea and the winemaker worked together on this vintage to add a drop more Trebbiano to the blend with the results being a fresh vibrant red that can be also be served chilled in the summer. Other than a small dose of SO2 there are no additives, interventions or manipulations in the winemaking process." - Strade Bianche
