Description

Details of wine

1996 is the date to mark for the beginning of the adventure of Lionel Cousin and his wife Ornella in the Brunello lands.

During this vintage what is known today with the nickname "French" acquires what is today known as the Cantina Cupano.

The company approach followed in the Tuscan lands was that of respecting the natural principles of cultivation with the inclusion of biological and biodynamic methods.

Cupano Sant'Antimo Ombrone 2016 is a red that leaves you speechless obtained from Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
Ruby red color, nose with hints of chocolate, toasted notes and cherry, without forgetting the vegetal notes.
Dense, long and persistent flavor with a strong tannin.

Our farm is on the hills south of Siena, Etruscan land, one of the most beautiful landscape in the world, Heritage of Unesco, where nature and millenary art melt in exquisite harmony. We live on a stony hill above the Ombrone river with good drainage, high mineral content and a wonderful view. Year after year we have confirmation that it is “un vrai, grand terroir”. Our mentor was Henri Jayer from Burgundy with his strong beliefs: few hectares, wine made in the vineyard, no chemical fertilizers or pesticides, limited yields, further selection on the sorting table with removal of any unripe or moldy grapes, autochthonous yeasts, malolactic on the lees in new French barriques. Carlo Ferrini selected the land for the vines and the vine-stocks, the growth system and the height of the vines. François Bouchet initiated us to biodynamic, the simple and efficient biodynamic of the old gentleman farmer he was. And only when Giulio Gambelli, glass in hand, looks at us in silence and gives us the thumbs up, we bottle. Thanks to these masters we hope to succeed in imbuing our wine with a memory, the landscape, a season, the story of our enchantment.
