Santa Vittoria has a single hectare of mature Incrocio Manzoni vines (over 20 years old). It is unusual to find Incrocio Manzoni this far south, the variety is a crossing of Riesling with Pinot Bianco, originally developed in the 1930s by Luigi Manzoni at the Instito di Viticoltura of Conegliano. It really works here though, thriving in the Tuscan heat.

The vineyard was planted using a Cordone Speronato* system, at a low density that yields just 5 tons per hectare. The grapes are pressed, and the juice given a cold soak* for 10 hours before a temperature-controlled fermentation using selected yeasts takes place. The wine is then aged on the lees* for 5 months, which brings a subtle texture to the finished wine. Extra Information
The wine is named after Marta and Mauro's daughter.
