Vineyard Notes: Maria Sole’s workhorse (pun intended) wine, Bulgarelli—named after her 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. Vines are Guyot and cordon-trained.

Winemaking Notes: Fermentation, with a 15-day maceration, occurs spontaneously with indigenous yeast. The wine matures at least 6 months in cement and 3 months in bottle. It is bottled without fining or filtration.

Tasting Notes: This wine pulls in multiple directions; it is both fresh and deep, both spicy and politely earthy, and its dark red fruits soar high, unfettered by cellar manipulations. The ever-versatile Sangiovese finds a new and lovely register here.
