The promised land

A lot happens under the Tuscan sun. And a lot of what actually happens in this magic Italian region has something to do with a couple of things internationally acknowledged as great. More often superb: wine and olive oil. ALMA – which in Italian is a synonym, although rarely used, of soul – goes directly to the roots of these two Italian celebrities.

How? By including Fattoria di Ruppiano, in the heart of the Chianti Classico region, Castelnuovo Berardenga, right in the company map, its vineyards and crops managed directly by ALMA WINES and its team. 32 acres of Sangiovese – the backbone of Chianti, plausibly the most popular Italian wine worldwide -  Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards and a fully operative cellar are truly the heart of Alma Wines´ production in Italy.

From growing new crus to perfect the existing production of wines gathered from the other stricly selected growers throughout the country, Ruppiano is both its open air lab and the most recent acquisition for the company, which felt being hands-on was increasingly becoming an irrevocable necessity.

At Ruppiano the Alma team can observe the production closely and ensure the upmost quality of every single wine bottled before it is shipped all over the world.  You know: at heart we, at Alma, are as romantic as the Tuscan breath-taking countryside landscape...

But Alma loves, and nurtures, a colourful bouquet of passions which lead to new projects and new partnerships. The newest one, which will be fully unveiled at the upcoming edition of Vinexpo in Bordeaux next month (June 18 – 21 ) is the Berselli & Solferino Signature Collection.

Conceived as a multifaceted tribute to the more and more appreciated Puglia grape varieties, basically red, the first gem on the crown to shine is a Primitivo. Better: the first vintage of this Primitivo that paramounts Alma´s production dedicated to this grape varietal.The chalky soil and the ideal microclimate of the area have contributed to develop the incredible grape variety – the vines are between 30 and 40 years old – picked to initiate this label. Aged 18 months in American Oak barrels and daily pumped over, this Primitivo is very powerful on tannin, with an extraordinarily long and round persistence. Paired with grilled meet and mature cheeses is a way to turn its tasting into a lasting memory.

Well, to be often renewed of course.

  It’s about time to dust your barbecue!
