Grape to Glass
Scopeto del Cavalli is a family-run smallholding perched on the western slopes of Montalcino.
Both the wild flowers and the olive trees have been purposely left in the vineyard–applying permacultural and biodynamic practices–to enhance biodiversity and encourage the symbiosis of olives and vines. Scopeto del Cavalli was one of the first farms to obtain organic certification in Montalcino.
The vines are grown along the stone walled terraces below the town. The surface of the vineyard is less than a hectare, so great care is provided to both growing the grapes and selecting the finest for winemaking.
At harvest time, the grapes are carefully chosen and taken to the Cupano winery where a further selection takes place.
The wine then ferments in stainless steel vats, and is aged in French oak barriques.
