Apice Stefano Amerighi 2019
This company was born from the passion and knowledge of the world of wine and the practice of biodynamics and covers an area of about 9 hectares. in Poggiobello di Farneta a perfect terroir for Syrah clones, carefully chosen in the Rhone Valley. Vineyard management follows the dictates of natural viticulture and biodynamic agriculture. The pruning and working of the soil are marked by the lunar and planetary phases and the phytosanitary defense is entrusted only to copper and sulfur distributed in small quantities thanks also to the use of macerated and natural herbal teas. The biodynamic preparations make it possible to vinify the land and avoid any fertilization and winter manure to structure the land during the cold season.
The whole manufacturing process is aimed at making the most of the raw material and the varietal characteristics, putting the work in the cellar and the contribution of man in second place, which must be limited to supporting the natural process of transformation of the grapes. The wine shows an intense red.
Stefano Amerighi's goal is to produce a great Syrah through the family tradition of his family, the passion and knowledge of the world of wine and the practice of biodynamics.
To do so, he identified a closed area of Cortona called Poggiobello di Farneta, and inside it, two hills well exposed to the south west, enclosed between an old road brecciata to the west, a grove to the south and the ridge of the hills to the east to close the horizon.
The geological and climatic surveys carried out on the farm then confirmed that this was the terroir we were trying to plant the clones and our Syrah selections, carefully chosen in the Rhone Valley.
The management of the vineyard follows the dictates of natural viticulture and biodynamic agriculture: the pruning and the working of the land are marked by the phases lunar and planetary; the phytosanitary defense is entrusted only to copper and sulfur distributed in small quantities thanks to the use of macerated and natural teas;
The biodynamic preparations allow you to vivify the earth and avoid any fertilization and the winter undercoats to structure the land during the cold season.
To date, the intent is to propose natural practice as an alternative to conventional agriculture through the cultivation of cereals, vegetables and fruits up to the
breeding of the animals together with the production of a great wine!
