Made from organic grapes and vinified in a natural way.
Bandita encloses in itself the soul of the three most important native vines of our territory: Montepulciano, Sangiovese and Lacrima di Morro d’Alba.
My idea was to take back and valorise an ancient tradition and merge in a single wine the best of these three grape varieties, thanks to the new technological solutions and to the will to create a wine of an international taste.
Maximum expression of every single grape variety, enhanced in a single wine, to give the sensation of importance in an intertwining of ancient memories, elegance and modernity.
The entire territory in just one sip.
We harvest by hand in a different time and vinify respecting the specifics of all three grapes to catch the essence of each one. After the fermentation and a first period of separate refinement the three wines are than assembled to continue their evolution in a single blend for at least two years. The last step is an aging in bottle.
“...the Montepulciano with strength and splendid complexity, the Sangiovese with its elegance and the Lacrima with its unique bouquet and touch of spiciness give birth to a surprising wine with great identity...”
