Pugnitello is an ancient Tuscan native grape variety almost disappeared, whose name (little fist) refers to the shape of its cluster. Following its re-discovery in the late 80’s, it has been researched in San Felice’s experimental Vineyard and in 2006 the first production of a wine made entirely from this grape was released to the market. Pugnitello is noteworthy for its distinctive characteristics, smoothness and full-bodied concentration.

Description

VINTAGE FEATURES

Winter was quite mild and rainy; elevated temperatures at the beginning of April have caused an early flowering of at least 10 days; after a regular May, the summer months were very hot, with temperatures high above seasonal average, with periodic rains that helped to maintain a good vegetative balance avoiding water distress. The ripening of the grapes was very good as well as the average quality of the wines produced.
