Fabio Motta, Lo Scudiere 2018
100% Sangiovese fermented in large oak barrels with 25% whole bunches to give a savoury complexity. Exotic red cherry fruit and a great balance between elegance and power.
Grapes have been hand-picked in small crates. 25% of nondestemmed grapes fermented in oak vats of 30 hl. Pumping overs have different frequency and duration, depending on the results of the tasting I carried out on a daily basis. Maceration on the skins lasted for more than a month.
Motta winery, a new, strong name in Bolgheri.Even though Motta winery is young, it lacks nothing in passion, drive and experience. Motta is the realization of one man's dream, Fabio Motta, who founded the winery in 2009 with the acquisition of 4 hectares of vines that were planted in 1997 within the Bolgheri DOC. The position was excellent: overlooking the sea, at the feet of the characteristic rolling hills of Bolgheri, with a south-western exposure. But Fabio Motta was no newcomer in Bolgheri. He worked for many years with esteemed Bolgheri producer Michele Satta, whom is now, in addition to being both his friend and mentor, also his father-in-law.The wines of Fabio Motta respect and reflect the characteristic traits of the Bolgheri terroir, interpreted within the unique frame of each vintage. Fabio likes to say that the two main ingredients of his wines are fruit and freshness. He considers himself no more than a facilitator. It is the land, the grapes and the weather that shape the personality of his wines.
