Sagona, Loro Ciuffenna, Arezzo
The farm was established in March 2012 by Daniele Corrotti. Sàgona is located in Pratomagno, in a hilly and wild territory. A total of 4 hectares of vines, and the average age of the plants is around 40 years. The soil composition is a mix of sand, clay and sedimentary rocks. Farmed with organic principals, with the use of tiny quantities of copper and sulfur when necessary. The yields are kept very low in order to favour the quality of the fruit and the expression of ‘terroir’. Daniele’s goal is to “be a farmer in the best possible way”. The wines are made from only native varieties: Sangiovese for the most part, but also Malvasia Nera, Ciliegiolo, Canaiolo, Colorino, Malvasia Bianca and Trebbiano. Fermentations are done in concrete tanks with spontaneous fermentations and without temperature control. No raking and less intervention as possible. Very light filtration are done when needed, while the addition of sulphites is limited to what is strictly necessary. The wines speak of the mountains, with the unmistakable elegant Tuscany flavours and the rustic and peasant imprint of the area.
