Farnito Valcolomba 2015 Toscano I.G.T.

From the Valcolomba estate nestled in the hills that lead down to the Tyrrhenian seacoast it is a true expression of the sunny and wild Tuscan Maremma. It is a complex, supple wine with an innate elegance and imposing structure.

Farnito Camponibbio

“Camponibbio” is a Vineyard located in the southern part of our Vino Nobile estate, just outside the town of Chianciano Terme, Siena. This vineyard is subdivided into various plots, each with its own grape varietal, clone and rootstock that best match the varying soil types. During each harvest we select the fruit from the best performing vineyard plots, given the weather conditions of that vintage. The grape composition of each vintage, therefore, is made of varying percentages of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

 

Farnito Brut

Based on an assemblage of Chardonnay wines from various vintages, the oldest of which have been aged in oak barrels. Because of its elaborate processing, this unique sparkling wine is produced in extremely limited quantity.

Farnito Vinsanto del Chianti 1999 D.O.C.

In the old days, wines that were consumed after special meals or by themselves because of their value and organoleptic characteristics were considered “luxury wines”. Vinsanto was one of these wines, made particularly valuable by the fact that each family’s father or grandfather would make their own, following a time-honored recipe handed down through generations. Many origins of this wine, and its singular name, have been hypothesized, the truth however is lost in time. One legend from Siena states that a friar from the fourteenth century would hand this wine to the ill disposed for its healing properties. From this the belief that this wine had miraculous properties, hence the name “Santo”. Another possible explanation to the name comes from its use by the church during the mass.

Farnito Acquavite d’Uva Sauvignon

This distillate comes from grapes fully ripened in the same dry-farmed vineyard overlooking the Valdarno valley. The skins are macerated with the must at low temperatures then distilled at the completion of fermentation in an artisanal still close to the winery.
