In 2010 an idea was born to produce a wine for a young, modern taste, which was anyway an expression of the Chianti territory. In this product we combine our technical expertise and the gifts given by this unique land. The vineyard had been planted in 2001, in a land where the old local farmers told that once were cultivated the grapes that produced the best wine in the whole area. When we bought that land, it had been abandoned and covered with brambles. This inspired us the name of our new wine: Dumeto, from the Latin word dumetum, which indeed indicates a ground covered with thorns, a brushwood.
Classification: IGT wine Toscana Rosso. Produced since 2010.
