PRIMO FUOCO (Rosso) ROSSO TOSCANA IGP

 
 

€ 19.00

In the language of potters, “Primo Fuoco” is the initial clay firing that leads to the creation of terracotta (with a second and a third firing you get different types of ceramic and majolica). This wine is fermented naturally and matured in a large terracotta amphora, hand made from local red clay (“terra rossa”).

The Fattoria di Sammontana with the adjacent Romanesque church of the 12th century , originally a property of the Medici family, Grand Dukes of Tuscany , was donated by them to the religious canons of the church of San Lorenzo in Florence. The monks used this property as a place of rest and retirement, but they also built a large underground cellar and nearby constructed a grand furnace with overlapping arches for the production of pottery and terracotta.
