The eastern side of the fence line at Podere Calzone is dominated by a 10-acre vineyard growing Sangiovese grapes (85%) and Merlot (15%). The vines typically produce about 4 tons of grapes, which are harvested in late September or early October.
Rosso e420, made exclusively from our own grapes, lives in stainless for several months and is then aged in French oak barrels for up to 20 months.
Rosso e420 has a black fruit nose that balances nicely across the palate, and a soft tannic touch that yields to a solid final glow. The harmony of this wine is a testament to our small production and our contiguous vineyard in which each vine is blessed with the same earth and the same sun.
New York-based artist Sienna Reid designed the label for Rosso e420, which features a striking drawing of a "Cinghiale" or wild boar. Our 120-acre property is home to roughly 100 of these animals, which are often heard and sometimes observed in the late summer, fall and winter.
