History Atis is the name of a mythic king, grandchild of Zeus. According to a legend, he was at the origin of Etruscan people, first civilization of our territory and first winegrowers in Italy (before XII c. BC). The Etruscans cultivated the vine as they saw it in nature, climbing to trees, as represented on the label. The Etruscan training system, the vine "married" to the tree, depicted on the label, has become the symbol of endless love in the Latin literature.
Location Castagneto Carducci (LI)
Climate Mediterranean, tempered by the breezes from the Tyrrhenian sea. The hilly area has the fresher temperature of the territory, with a broad day-night temperature differentials on summer.
Composition of the land Alluvial, very deep, sandy-clay, with clay areas, rich of pebbles.
Harvest Merlot has been harvested at September 2nd, the Cabernet franc in October 3th and the C. sauvignon two days after. The selected grapes have been de-stemmed and pressed very softly, within a few minutes from the harvest, without adding sulfur dioxide to maintain the biodiversity of the yeasts.
Vinification Fermentation and maceration were favored with frequent manual punching down. The maceration lasted 10-15 days.
Aging In used oak barrels (225 and 500 liters) for 24 months, on the lees (on the yeasts). Each barrel was stirred manually once a week. After the aging, the wine was gradually subjected to several decanting to clear it (then it is not filtered). At the end, Atis was reconstituted in a large tank and left to mix in a natural way for about 4 months. Finally, we refined it in the bottle for 14 months, in the best storage conditions. The addition of sulfites is minimal.
Alcohol 14.50% by volume
Production year 15,000 bottles
Matching It goes well with dishes with an intense flavor but it is also excellent "for meditation".
