Amphora Vignamasso

Amphora Vignamasso

Toscana I.G.T. Organic

Crafted from a single parcel of Sangiovese, Vigna del Masso is defined by an enormous volcanic stone at the ingress to the vineyard. The wine is vinified whole clusters and undergoes an extended maceration period in amphorae. A rich and intense red wine, deeply respectful of the terroir of origin, with which San Polo confirms itself as one of the most innovative and experimental realities in Montalcino, entirely inspired by the principles of sustainability and social responsibility.

Climate trend

2021 will be remembered as a vintage of character, dynamic, unpredictable. It began with a mild winter, which led to an early budding, and continued with a rainy and cool spring, characterized by particularly cold days which led to a slowdown in the shoots growth. Despite April exceptional drops in temperature, San Polo vines have suffered in a limited way, thanks to the position of the vineyards which, located on a hill at an altitude of 400-450 meters, enjoy a constant breeze that maintains the vines dry and healthy, avoiding the danger of frost. The prolonged absence of rainfall in the period from May to the first half of July favored flowering and fruit set. The pre-closing phase of the bunch was anticipated, resulting in the formation of more sparse bunches. The summer, dry and drought, ended with a rainfall at the end of August which brought, in just two days, approximately 80mm of water, a precious gift from nature that has brought the water balance back to optimal levels.

Vinification with whole bunches in amphora with spontaneous fermentation and absence of pumping over and punching down. As soon as the tumultuous phase ended, the amphorae are filled with wine and the maceration is carried out with a submerged cap without external intervention.


Ageing takes place in amphora on the skins (submerged cap) for four months. After racking, it ages in amphora for approximately 10 months prior to bottling.
