Kurni comes primarily from a 95-year-old plot of Montepulciano that the Casolanetti family has farmed for generations. Densely planted and high above the nearby sea, these natural and healthy vines produce incredibly intense and complex fruit. As Marco uses no additions whatsoever during the vinification of his wines (he only uses small bits of sulphur just before bottling), his practices are peculiar yet remarkable. This wine was aged in 200% new oak - after the primary fermentation in new oak, the wine is later racked into new barrels for further aging and to aerate the Montepulciano. The dry extract on this wine is off the charts meaning the tannic structure of this wine is palpable.
