Exclusively from the best sites on the property, after months of research, analysis and numerous tastings, our Sangiovese came to life in 2013: bright garnet red, with freshness and complexity in equal measure.
These first vintages were all made in extremely limited quantities.
The name 'Prototipo' (prototype) came quite naturally, we named these first three releases Prototipo 470.1 (2013 vintage), 470.2 (2014 vintage), 470.3 (2015 vintage) - 470 indicating the average altitude (metres above sea level) of the estate. Fabbrica is the Italian word for factory, which gives further validation to the name Prototipo.
From the 2016 vintage this wine is simply called Sangiovese.
