Cuculaia is meant to be an oenological experiment, a trip towards extreme frontier of quality, looking for the limit which Syrah can attain in Cortona’s terroir.
It is made only in the great years, exclusively from Syrah grapes cultivated in our farm, with very low yields per hectare (maximum 4 tons from 5.000 vines), strictly selected throughout the year (especially before and during the harvest) expressly for this wine, all over our best vineyards, above all from our favourite one, named Cuculaia, hand picked (usually from mid-September) into small 15 kg. boxes with ventilation holes.
The grapes are very gently crushed and destemmed (just opening but not crushing the berries), then pumped in temperature–controlled stainless steel tanks, where the slow alcoholic fermentation is carried out for about 15 days; the following maceration of the skins lasts about four more weeks.
