Annesanti 2018 Piano della Torre (Pinot Noir) 750mL
Francesco Annesanti says that his soul is in his wine. Francesco naturally farms and vinifies in a minimalist manner by himself; he hand bottles, labels and waxes the bottle tops himself. He personally designed all of his labels and even made the desk that he uses.
Francesco’s Cantina is in an off the beaten path, rural part of Umbria, where vines are not typically planted. He is a true artist, creating harmonious expressions of old vine Trebbiano Spoletino, Malvasia and Grechetto, alongside non-indigenous varieties such as Pinot Noir and Merlot. His rarest wines are fermented in terra cotta amphora and aged in glass demijohn; with bottle counts numbering in the hundreds each vintage.
Piano della Torre: “The Tower Floor”. 500 bottles produced. Pinot Noir fermented in terra cotta amphora and aged in glass demijohn for 3 months following fermentation. It is bottled without fining or filtration, during clear skies and a waning moon. Piano della Torre is a poised and effortless wine with crunchy red fruit and cranberry aromas, with suggestions of fresh herbs. Its wonderfully transparent and light on its feet despite being an intense and linear expression.
