TENUTA BELVEDERE ONE OF THE FIRST VINEYARDS TO USE ARTENOVA WINE-JARS

"Amphora: an alternative way to

enhance Tuscan white grapes"

From white wine "Noesis" in jars treated with beeswax to red Sangiovese aged 12 months in terracotta

Tenuta Belvedere” from Rignano sull'Arno (Tuscany), owned by Caterina Brettoni Ferroni, is one of the first wine estates to have used the terracotta jars from Impruneta made by Artenova for the fermentation and aging of their wines. Their white wine “Noesis” is made of a blend of Trebbiano, Malvasia and San Colombano and is fermented in a 500-litre jar internally coated with beeswax. During fermentation, the temperature of the must is maintained at a stable 19-20 degrees C by means of air conditioning in the fermentation room. After the alcoholic fermentation, Noesis continues to mature in the jar for another 7-8 months before being bottled. At the end of this process the resulting wine is very expressive and vital, full of unusual characteristics making it a very interesting white.
"We have always believed in the necessity to search for an alternative way to enhance the Tuscan white grape varieties which are not normally considered of having particularly distinctive aromatic traits - explains Caterina Ferroni - For several years now we have been using a 500-litre jar for red wine, which is also coated inside with beeswax. This allows us to mature the Sangiovese grapes maintaining all their sensorial characteristics in order to create our red wine “L'Origine”. This red is the maximum expression of Sangiovese and transmits all its native aromatic purity. After fermentation it is aged for 12 months in terracotta. We have always opted for amphorae treated with beeswax, in particular for white wine in order to limit and control oxygenation".
