Origins and history of a native Tuscan grape
Foglia Tonda is one of the many autochthonous Tuscan varieties that have been abandoned over time. We find traces of this vine in the course of history, and exactly from the middle of 1800, when it was recognized among more than three thousand varieties of vines. Foglia Tonda was then replaced by “easier” or more famous varieties at an international level until, in the 1970s, it was rediscovered and brought back to its real value.
An autochthonous vine variety, with a beating Tuscan heart, grown in just twenty hectares scattered in the region.A strong plant with large pyramidal clusters, which finds its preferred area in Chianti, where it matures late compared to its closest relative, Sangiovese.
As it is easy to guess, the attribution of its name comes from the rounded shape of the leaf, almost devoid of lobes.
The rediscovery of the vine brings back in the bottle, reserved for a select few, a wine of inestimable value which perfectly blends ancient characteristics and modern methods of winemaking.
Drinking it for the first time is an unforgettable experience.. It is recommended to keep a few bottles for a long aging that certainly will give incredible satisfaction.
