The wine displays a pale golden hue and offers a delightful and vibrant nose with hints of apple skin, peach, and waxy undertones. On the palate, it presents a clean and fresh taste, showcasing a complex savoury character, along with refreshing notes of apple, lemon, and orchard fruits, complemented by a subtle herbaceous touch. The dry and textured finish lingers pleasantly, evolving into nutty nuances as it persists.
Podere Le Ripi is a picturesque estate located in the beautiful Castelnuovo dell’Abate zone in Montalcino. With a commitment to preserving the land’s natural flora and adopting biodynamic practices, the estate produces exceptional wines with extraordinary fruit quality. Their unique winemaking process involves fermenting and macerating the grapes in terracotta jars for 8 months, followed by ageing on grape skins in clay amphorae for 8-12 months, resulting in wines that are both fragrant and laden with fruit flavours.
