Tenuta Di Vaira continues to amaze wine enthusiasts with the introduction of its second single-variety wine: the Petit Verdot 2020. This new vinous gem is made from grapes grown in the southeast area of the estate, on soil over 20 years old, predominantly loamy-clay. This unique terroir, combined with the spur cordon training system and a planting density of about 5,500 vines per hectare, gives the Petit Verdot 2020 distinctive and captivating characteristics.

The Petit Verdot, a grape variety originally from Bordeaux, is known for its ability to produce robust and aromatic wines. The vines at Tenuta Di Vaira are carefully tended, and their adaptation to the estate’s loamy-clay soil allows the grapes to fully express their potential. This type of soil, rich in minerals, promotes slow and even ripening of the grapes, allowing them to develop remarkable aromatic complexity.

The winemaking process for Tenuta Di Vaira’s Petit Verdot 2020 is a blend of tradition and innovation. The grapes are hand-harvested and carefully selected to ensure the highest quality. After an extended maceration to extract color and tannins, the wine matures in oak french tonneaux, where it gains structure and depth. Every stage of the process is designed to enhance the unique characteristics of the Petit Verdot.

The result is a wine with an intense, deep color and a rich, complex aromatic bouquet. On the nose, the Petit Verdot 2020 offers notes of berries, spices, and subtle floral hints. On the palate, it stands out for its robust structure, with well-integrated tannins and a long finish. It is a wine that reflects the excellence of the terroir and the passion of Tenuta Di Vaira’s winemakers.

The production of the Petit Verdot 2020 is limited, with an even smaller number of bottles compared to the previous year’s Cabernet Franc. This choice underscores Tenuta Di Vaira’s commitment to producing high-quality wines for a discerning audience.

Enthusiasts will have the opportunity to discover the Petit Verdot 2020 during cellar visits, where they can immerse themselves in the unique atmosphere of the estate and appreciate the dedication that drives every stage of production. With its second single-variety wine, Tenuta Di Vaira confirms its ability to innovate and best highlight the peculiarities of its territory, offering unforgettable tasting experiences.

In conclusion, Tenuta Di Vaira’s Petit Verdot 2020 is a tribute to the terroir and an example of winemaking excellence. This wine, with its limited production and extraordinary quality, represents a new milestone in the company’s history and an unmissable discovery for all wine lovers.
