“Bulgarelli” — named after Maria's grandfather’s prized stallion — is pure Sangiovese from 20 to 30 year-old vines planted in the sandy clay soils of the farm’s main three parcels: Ficomontano, Melogranino, and Campo Cavalli.
Fermented naturally in cement, and aged six months in non-thermoregulated stainless steel, Bulgarelli is bottled without fining or filtration, and with a bare minimum of added sulfur. This distinctive wine pulls in multiple directions; it is both fresh and deep, both spicy and earthy, and its dark red fruits soar high, unfettered by cellar manipulations. The ever-versatile Sangiovese finds a new and lovely register here.
