Foglia Tonda is an old Tuscan grape dating back to the 1800s. Similar to Sangiovese, although later ripening, but producing significantly more grapes per plant, hence Sequerciani crop the plants back dramatically in July leaving only the best bunches to ripen.

Everything is done by hand of course. They do an early selective first pick (as you can't leave ripe grapes on the vine or they start fermenting) before the main harvest. The grapes are then fermented using their own natural yeasts in large tubs for seven days, then the must is separated with part aged in teracotta amphorae, the rest in oak barrels. The wine is then blended and bottled, then further bottle aged for 6 months prior to release.

It's a rich flavoursome wine, soft mouthfeel with a little spice, blackberry flavours and some vanilla on the finish - to me it was very much like good Aglianico. Again completely natural with nothing added and nothing taken away.

"grapes, sun and earth - that's it"
