Vineyard of production: 

The “Saltamacchia” is produced from two vineyards which are part of the Nascosta Estate. They are situated in the heart of the Val d’Orcia, at an altitude between 410 and 430 meters. The two vineyards are divided by the Tuscan green bush, at the origin of the “Saltamacchia” name, which means “Skip the bush”. The vineyards cover a total area of about 1 hectare. Their soils are made of clay, rich in calcareous lithoids and sediments of marine origin from the Mio-Pliocene age and in volcanic stones linked to the Pleistocene activity of the Mount Amiata. The characteristics of the soils along with the techniques of precision applied to achieve the highest quality result in very low yields, of between 40 and 50 quintals per hectare

Vinification and Aging: 

The harvesting time of the grapes depends on when they achieve their optimal ripeness and may therefore vary from year to year, falling generally between mid-September and end-October. The grapes are selected and harvested, rigorously by hand, at a maximum temperature of 20°C (68°F). Then follows a second selection of the grape bunches and their maceration in cement vats at low temperatures. Depending on the season, a part of the grapes is kept un-destemmed. After their maceration start the operations of vinification, consisting mainly in breaking up of the cap and racking & returning (delestages) the liquid mass, a process lasting for two to three weeks. It is followed by a second maceration period of 15 to 25 days, which precedes the transfer of the wine in wood. The wine is aged in 500-liter French and Austrian oak tonneaux, for a duration of 12 to 18 months, with a subsequent refinement in bottle of at least six months.
