Canaiuolo Rosato, Montenidoli
Montenidoli is owned by Elisabetta Fagioli, one of the legends of Italian wine. She is now in her late seventies but her passion and energy is still a true force of nature.
Overlooking the famous medieval towers of San Giminano, the vineyards have one of the wine world’s best views! These vineyards are organically grown; for fifty years no herbicide, insecticides or any other chemicals have been used. This is a microclimate brimming with life. The vineyards are aglow with fireflies by night and dancing with ladybugs by day. This energy, and that of Elisabetta, is almost palpable in the wines; these are wines of real beauty.
The grape is Canaiuolo (often blended with Sangiovese in Tuscany), and this wine is a beautiful pale salmon colour. Along the same lines as the best from Provence but with a certain Italian twist; a little bit more depth, texture and length. It really comes alive with shellfish.
