Pugnitello, a vine variety of ancient origin, got its name from the fist-like shape of its bunches of grapes.
In Italian fist is pugno and pugnitello means small fist. Because this variety only produces a limited number of small bunches of grapes, that's to say it is low yielding, its cultivation was abandoned a long time ago. However the concentration of the vine's energy in such small and few grapes makes for a very intense wine in all of its aspects.
The oak barrel phase enhances and completes this wine's fruity quality while the time it spends smoothing in the bottle, reveals special scents. Tasting this wine sends us back to an ancient and fierce Tuscany, that can still be felt today.
