The winery is currently in biological conversion. 25 Ha of vineyards, 100 thousand bottles every year.
The names “Volpolo” and “Sapaio” recall two ancient Tuscan vines and have been chosen to highlight the local origin of the products, starting from their appellation.
The crown, however, symbol of the company, wants to be a tribute to the nobility of wine and the territory, fully respected in the vineyard and in the cellar.
With an intense red color, it presents itself to the nose with an intense sensation of red and black ripe fruit, together with spicy notes.
In the mouth it is taut and fragrant, supported by a good acidity and dense, tight tannins.
The wine has a great evolutionary potential and will acquire personality over time.
