The Canaiolo nero (Canaiolo black) is an ancient grape variety native to Tuscany, used in the past to mellow the Chianti.Twenty years ago, in our winery in Siena, out of academic curiosity, we vinified it in purity: provided with a tricky character, he behaves like a capricious child, he wants extreme attention, it requires a considerable amount of time, but in the end the result pays the effort. It is a wine with marked varietal characteristics: from the evident black peppery smell and taste to the sweet aroma of violet and not least the smoothness of its tannins. Our Canaiolo wine, born from a young vineyard, in which we planted self-produced rooted cuttings of Canaiolo nero made with buds from the old plant, in order to remove from genetic erosion such a rare and precious vine, defined as the Pinot Noir of Tuscany for its softness and ease of drinking.
