Toscana Azzero

Azzero is a wine produced without using fermentation starters or preservatives! Azzero is obtained from a very careful selection of grapes. In fact, only the healthiest and perfectly ripe bunches can yield a truly balanced, harmonious wine within a very short ageing period. The Sangiovese grapes selected to produce the Azzero are harvested by hand in experimental vineyards which are not treated with copper or sulfur, only with natural adjuvants. No sulfites added! The sulfites found in wine may come from three sources: from the compounds used in the vineyard to ward off vine pests; from the voluntary addition of sulphur dioxide as an additive; from the yeasts used during fermentation, including those that are spontaneously found in the must. The Azzero contains only those sulfites produced spontaneously by the yeasts found naturally in the grapes. The Azzero is then bottled without further clarification or filtration. The result is a fruity, mineral wine of intense vinosity.
