"Cartacanta" Montecucco Sangiovese DOCG 2018 - Basile

Among the many (beautiful) expressions of Sangiovese in Tuscany, Montecucco DOCG should not be forgotten. We are in the heart of the Maremma region, where the region's main grape variety reaches maturity thanks to unique climatic conditions. Heat, sun and a particularly dry climate allow Sangiovese to enrich itself with colour and sugar, giving rise to wines with character and an unmistakable style. Like this Cartacanta, proposed by Basile. The Sangiovese is backed up by a very small proportion of Merlot, about 10%. The result of organic viticulture, this red wine matures for 12 months, partly in large casks and partly in new and second-hand French tonneaux. In keeping with the Basile winery's tradition, this Cartacanta is not filtered before bottling, but is left to rest in the safety of the cellar for over 18 months before release. A fine Tuscan with character, perfect with Fiorentina steak or in any case to be paired with meat with a strong flavour.

This is the story of Giovan Battista Basile, a Neapolitan by origin but a Maremman by adoption. In 1999, in fact, he left his native Campania to live a life in the countryside, tending his vines, cradled by the mild climate of the slopes of the ancient Amiata Volcano, in the Tuscan Maremma. At the time, the estate was in a state of abandonment, but Giovan Battista did not give up and within a few years he managed to create a modern organic farm with zero environmental impact. The energy needed to run the farm is produced by a photovoltaic system and the renovation work followed the principles of green building and energy saving. Today the vineyards, which fall within the Montecucco DOCG, cover an area of about 8 hectares, divided between Sangiovese and Merlot, Vermentino, Vionier and Petit Manseng. Harvesting by hand and careful processing in the cellar allow the Basile Organic Farm to produce around 50,000 bottles each year.
