La Prova Uno Sangiovese 'Piccolino' 2019
La Prova Uno ‘Piccolino’ Sangiovese 2019
With Uno, we create wines that express only the most unique expressions of site, variety, and grower union. Each wine comes from a specific single vineyard site, so we produce fewer bottles, and that site ticks all the boxes for ideal climate and geography for the variety, and is tended to by one of the most passionate growers we know
Climate | Cooler due to elevation.
Season | The warm days and cool nights of the 2019 growing season delivered intensity of flavour and great natural acidity in the wines released from this vintage.
Source | Macclesfield is a beautiful township in the rolling southern Hills, it has deep red soils with ironstone scattered throughout a sandy loam topsoil. It holds water well, which is great for a warmer westerly vineyard aspect and a late ripener such as Sangiovese
Grower | The Blows family.
Winemaking | Hand-picked, destemmed and wild fermented. The grapes spend about 35 days on skins to shape the tannins into being firm yet silky while retaining vibrant fruit. Six months in old French oak. Unfined and unfiltered. Vegan friendly.
