Allow yourself the pleasure of a rare and ancient Tuscan wine with limited production.
Among the local singe-varietal wines grown by DANTE, the rare Pugnitello deserves a place of honour. An ancient, long forgotten vine of Tuscan origin, left behind due to the low productivity of the vines. Low yields had to do with its small, round and truncated cluster. A “small handful” of juicy grapes, which lends it name to the wine itself. Today, the high quality of the blend have made its low yield less of a business deterrent. And thanks to DANTE Pugnitello, it marvels palates again with its unmistakable taste.
Local single-varietal Pugnitello: The art of traditional wine.
To grow and vinify an ancient wine like Pugnitello, respect for the wine tradition is paramount. DANTE applies a rigorously manual method of individual cluster harvesting, and an artisanal vinification process. Maceration in skins for 20 days, until the end of alcoholic fermentation, is followed by a 12-month aging process in oak barrels. The extremely limited production is offset by the exceptional nature of the wine, which expresses all the peculiarities of the original taste.
Savour the true Tuscany soul.
Thanks to the rediscovery of this local single-varietal wine, abandoned for centuries, the Maremma Pugnitello returns to embellish tables and elevate tastings. A wine for true connoisseurs, for those who love the exclusive experience of true local flavours. The ruby red colour, with violet hues, fascinates at first glance. The perfume combines notes of wild berries with a slightly herbaceous finish, while the full taste with a high alcohol content has particularly fine tannins. The tasting of DANTE Pugnitello is an intense and powerful experience that expresses Tuscany’s most intimate essence. A wine that goes beyond labels and standardisations to convey the aromas and flavours of the Italian territory.
