In addition to pasture areas, olive trees, wheat fields, forests, vegetable gardens, a restaurant and a guest house, there is also a vineyard with Greccheto Gentile alias Pignoletto on the 100 hectare land of the Tenuta Saiano.
From the variety that is often vinified to completely irrelevant wines, the Maggioli family is leaving a small masterpiece with the L’Animo. Its vines will certainly benefit from the geology of the Valmarecchia hill world, which is crossed by plaster veins, but at the same time the end result also illustrates how meticulously and conscientiously deals with the grape variety in the Tenuta Saiano in the vineyard as well as in the basement.
Outside outdoors, the work is craftsmanship and biologically certified. Inside IM cellars are briefly pressed the grapes in order to then leave them on the shells for three days - long enough to give the wine a sustainable structure on the way, but at the same time the Terroir and the grape variety the first and last words too left.
The L’Animo is substantial, has grip and a compact texture, has a lively and animating effect and builds on aromas that reminiscent of fresh, juicy yellow fruit and meadow flowers. It is long, vertical, tight, mineral and persistent and should also benefit from the slow offense of time over the next decade.
