Rosso Cielo d'Ulisse produced by Podere Le Ripi, fits within the great Tuscan classics, those timeless wines that tell the whole story of the splendid hills of the Val d'Orcia
We are in the home of Sangiovese, Montalcino, where Francesco Illy fell in love with this farm and bought it in 1984 from a Sardinian shepherd to relaunch it nationally and internationally.
The vineyards are cultivated following the principles of biodynamics and one of the most innovative elements inserted by Francesco Illy was to create high density soils, so as to create the densest vineyard in the world today called Toscana IGT "bonsai".
Rosso Cielo d'Ulisse is a red wine with a strong character made with the classic Sangiovese, hand-picked, macerated and fermented in steel and then refined for 36 months in wooden barrels.
An elegant wine in which all the principles of the philosophy of this cellar come together, fresh and with never invasive tannins. A Tuscan evergreen.
