100% Sangiovese grapes.
Estate grown and hand harvested the grapes for this wine are grown at altitudes of over 1500 feet above sea level where the cooling night time temperature change provides the complexity for this elegant wine. The wine is fermented with local native yeasts and there is no clarification and minimal filtration to preserve the expression of terroir. After careful grape selection a long maceration is followed with at least 18 months in large barrels [40 hl] and then 6 months in 10 hl barrels. Messaggero will spend at least 12 months in the bottle before it is released.
