Tenuta Orsumella

 

This estate, run by the third generation of the Menichetti family, has 25 hectares under vine and is located up in the San Casciano commune. Orsumella is the name of a stream that flows through the estate’s vineyards and is said to reflect the stars of the Little Bear constellation during summer nights.

Description

The wine is produced from handpicked Sangiovese grapes in small crates and undergo further selection in the cellar. Skin maceration has an average length of 15- 20 days. During this period, alcoholic fermentation is completed at a controlled temperature of 27 degrees. Daily pumpovers and delestage are finalised for a greater extraction.  It is then poured into stainless steel tanks for malolactic conversion after which it is placed in French Oak Barrels where it ages for ten months.
