Wine Making:
Riccardo Olivi and his father, founder of Cantine Olivi, have built an amazing estate around the philosophy of working hard: rigorous vineyard management keeps all yields to a max of 800g per vine; hand harvesting; 2x manual sorting (bunches, then berries). The exceptional fruit quality allows wild yeast fermentations in their gravity-fed and solar-powered winery. The rare Pugnitello grape is a Tuscan native, and Olivi is one of only two bottlings in the world of this ancient variety.
