Elisabetta Foradori, one of Italys top superstar winemakers, famous for her work with Teraldego in the Alto Adige has come together with 2 friends, Giovanni Podini and Thomas Widmann, to develop Ampeleia: a completely unique project in the Maremma region of Tuscany, farmed biodynamically, focusing on the synergy between mankind and nature, producing fresh and elegant, silky wines. The estate overlooks the medieval village of Roccatederighi, located on three different levels of altitude varying from 200 to 600 meters above sea level Ampeleia di Sopra (Upper Ampeleia), Ampeleia di Mezzo(Central Ampeleia) and Ampeleia di Sotto (Lower Ampeleia). Ampeleia includes a total of 150 hectares of which only 40 are planted with vines. The property slopes down towards the sea, nestled in a territory made of numerous plots of land, hidden among the lush vegetation, where earlier Etruscan settlers nourished the soil to grow grapes. 100% Biodynamic Alicante Nero. The grapes are sourced from a single plot called "Vigna della Pieve", with sandy soils rich in pebbles, where Alicante Nero vines grow – a common Mediterranean variety also known as Grenache in France, Cannonau in the neighbouring island of Sardinia and as Garnacha in Spain. Raised in concrete.
