Fedespina - the flagship wine of the namesake winery - is an elegant and passionate expression of Pinot Noir from the Tuscan Apennines. It comes in fact from the cool climate of Lunigiana, and ages for 15 months in French oak barrels: on the nose it explodes with finesse in notes of cassis, berries, tropical hints, notes of leather, licorice and balsamic herbs, framed by mineral sensations, while on the palate it is long and enveloping, full of the proverbial grace proper to this grape variety
Fedespina is the flagship wine of the winery carrying the same name and one of the most complex and profound expressions of Italian Pinot Noir. Podere Fedespina is a splendid reality in Lunigiana, the natural watershed between Liguria and Tuscany, still too little known for the quality of its wines. Certainly the presence of "cumbersome" neighbours has contributed significantly to this oversight, but the eyes and especially the palates of the most attentive have not missed the expressive peaks that local wines can reach, when produced with sensitivity and knowledge. The big star here is the Ciliegiolo, flanked by international grape varieties such as Merlot and Pinot Noir that are, however, long rooted in the territory and capable of producing distinctive wines of great finesse.
The red Fedespina is produced from pure Pinot Noir grapes, from vines over 40 years old resting on alluvial soils. In the vineyard, the approach is careful and as non-interventionist as possible, with a constant eye on biodiversity. In the cellar, spontaneous alcoholic fermentation in cement vats and maceration on the skins for about 20 days are carried out consistently. The wine then matures for 15 months in 300-litre French oak barrels.
Fedespina's wine captivates in its bright, transparent ruby colour, typical of its grape variety of origin. Generous from the first smell, the liquid offers a truly wide variety of aromas, including cassis, leather, blackberry and refreshing balsamic herbs. A great wine that extends sinuously on the palate, conquering every area of the mouth by virtue of a perfect cohesion between pulp, acidity and saline texture. A bottle that obviously recalls food, even in important pairings with noble game and mature cheeses.
