COSTA TOSCANA ROSSO I.G.T.
A pure single-varietal Sangiovese, Solenida is the result of a strict selection of Tenuta Podernovo’s grapes thanks to the AnimavitisR project, that makes it possible to harvest the microzones separately and obtain small grape bunches and light, concentrated grapes, allowing for the maximum quality and expression of the territory.
This organic wine owes its name to the Solenidae shell, that bears testimony to the rich presence of fossils in the Estate’s soil.
Sangiovese grapes, partly deriving from the massal selection of the old vineyard situated in Podernovo.
Solenida is the result of a strict selection of grapes from vineyards in the province of Pisa, more specifically in Terricciola – Costa Toscana.
