Filippo Calabresi - DO.T.E

 

Filippo Calabresi discovered his vineyard in Cortona, Tuscany in 2014 where he began to recover the vines that are now growing predominately Syrah, planted in 2002 and Viognier that was planted in 1991. 

The grapes are grown without using any systemic pesticides (fungicides, herbicides, insecticides). Musts and wines are treated in total absence of chemical and enological products (including sulphites). Each bottle is a deliberate result of a self-determined path; any differences need to be considered as parallel deviations proceeding in the same direction of the chosen path.
Our paths met at the RAW 2018 wine fair in New York. I had tasted so many wines that day and then I reached the DO.T.E stand, where I was blown away by Filippo's electric, but precise wines. He then became the first winemaker on the SOMA VINES importing portfolio :)
