Sometimes wine can do children good!

All sales proceeds will be donated to Save the Children Italia to support the project "Community teaching in Tigray". The project has the objective of building 4 schools and 4 water pits in a desert region of Ethiopia and thereby granting a better future for thousands of children and their communities.

A great wine awarded with "3 bicchieri" by the Gambero Rosso Vini d'Italia guide. "Il Puro" (The Pure) it’s pure indigenous Sangiovese from the vineyard of Casanova, located at 1470 feet above the sea level, on the South facing slope of Volpaia between the celebrated vineyards of Coltassala and Balifico. Here 25 clones of Sangiovese indigenous of Volpaia are reproduced from over 60 years old vines to preserve the local genetic diversity. The 2006 vintage is the first selection from the vineyard Casanova that has given birth to "Il Puro": 100% sangiovese, 100% indigenous clones, 100% organic, 100% chianti classico, zero emissions of CO2. "Il Puro" is the demonstration of how the vinification of pure Sangiovese in the Chianti Classico gives the most true and authentic representation of the territory. Intense rubin colour. The nose is extremely elegant and characterized by fresh note of cherry and violet typical of the Sangiovese accompanied by hints of vanilla and cacao. The mouth is soft, silky, intriguing with a fruitful aftertaste and an extremely long finish. Harvest date: October 8th, 2006. Ageing period: 18 months in new French oak casks. The bottles of "Il Puro" will be shipped wrapped in tissue-paper and packed in a single bottle wood box sealed with sealing-wax. In each package there will be a leaflet describing "Il Puro" and explaining the project. Only 1483 botttles!.

The producer

Volpaia is an 11th Century fortified village which has been entirely restored and devoted to the production of wine. Something that has been going on there since 1172! In 2000 The Wall Street Journal named Volpaia one of the seven wonders of Italy and, in fact, every year it attracts innumerable visitors. Local traditions are very much respected and around Volpaia they grow mainly Sangiovese grapes, but they do use the latest technology. Over the years, in an almost ideal location, they planted and later transferred various Sangiovese clones they collected and nurtured with the utmost care in a special vineyard. Volpaia’s high altitude, special terrain and state of the art technology all contribute to the special quality of its wines, bestowing on them a unique elegance.

Best with

Wild game and spicy cheeses.

How to keep it

This is a wine that can be aged for a very long time, over twenty years if it is kept in the right conditions, the bottles should be laid horizontally in a cool, dark, humid wine-cellar.

How to serve it

It is recommended to open the bottle at least an hour before serving and decant the wine into a large carafe so that it has a chance to air and its rotundity can be appreciated in full, the wine should be served at 18-20 degrees centigrade in clear, transparent crystal goblets.
