description

Details of wine

Podere Le Ripi is located in Montalcino, far from the chaos of the cities, immersed in the scents of the hills where everything is uncontaminated and life flows slowly.

A Podere where the vines are grown according to the principles of biodynamics, born from the passion for these lands of Francesco Illy who bought it in 1984 from a Sardinian shepherd.

Rosso di Montalcino Sogni e Follia is made with pure Sangiovese, the grapes are harvested by hand and brought slowly to the cellar where the aging in oak barrels enhances all the classicism of the most famous grape of Montalcino.

A red with a perfect balance between freshness and power, a young interpretation of a Montalcino classic to be opened in the company of your closest friends.

Podere le Ripi started as a dream, and a very old one too: a dream to create something. This dream is also an aesthetic one: of creating something extremely beautiful. When I was 18 years old it was supposed to be an island, and Podere le Ripi is not an island, but it is some sort of a peninsula that dives into the noisy Orcia river. With time, this something beautiful became also healthy and sustainable, and subsequently we realized that it could have been applied somewhere else, therefore becoming replicable and socially positive in its approach.
