In Vineyard
Lodolaio is born from Sangiovese grapes obtained from reproduction by mass selection of vines of ancient origin, a true corporate heritage, in a soil characterized mainly by galestro and alberese.
The year 2016 was characterized by constant heat, without excessive peaks, which helped the ripening of the grapes. The excellent summer and the accentuated temperature range created an ideal climate for the production of wines with high aromatic profiles and with excellent acidity. A vintage that, more than others, will enhance the characteristics of Sangiovese, with anthocyans, polyphenols and varietal perfumes of great uniqueness and

In cellar
Maceration occurs in concrete tanks for 35-40 days. The wine, after a first decanting, refines for 12 months in new french oak barrique. After a passage in steel tanks, the wine is bottled and ages until the perfect maturity level is reached.
