This wine is strongly influenced by the proximity to the sea and the alluvial characteristics of the soil. Land and sea breezes along with a modern drip irrigation system grant the best conditions to a successful organic farming practice as well as to a long and slow ripening of the fruit developing an elegant and complex bouquet. To the nose it is rich, with hints of blueberry and blackberry along with hints of boisée and cinnamon. It is a round and soft wine well structure with a very persistent long finish of red fruit.

The producer

Prelius is the estate of Federica Mascheroni Stianti from the family owner of the Castello di Volpaia. Prelius is the name given by the Romans to the ancient costal lake of Prile. Already with the Etruscans the land surrounding the lake was a flourishing community dedicated to the commerce of salt and to fishing. The costal lake used to lay from Castiglione della Pescaia to the Argentario peninsula, separated from the sea by a sandy strip that is now the marvelous pine-wood of Grosseto. Prile, where the vineyards are located, is two miles away from Castiglione della Pescaia along the slopes of the hilly amphitheater surrounding the ancient lake. The vineyards are on the south southwest slopes at an average altitude of fifty meters above the sea level. They are all irrigated with a drip system and grown with organic farming practices.
