Tenuta Campo di Sasso / Wines / Sof
SOF is the new rosé of Tenuta Campo di Sasso, envisioned by and dedicated to Sophia Antinori, the daughter of Marchese Lodovico. The grapes, Cabernet Franc and Syrah, are selected in the San Giovanni vineyard situated on the gently sloping hillside in Bibbona, not far from the Tuscan coast of the Alta Maremma.
The soil type is loam with sand, silt and a small percentage of clay.
The sea breezes allow for good ventilation in the vineyards, creating a benevolent temperature difference between day and night. This preserves freshness and develops complexity. The grapes were handpicked during the early hours of the morning between the 14th – 16th of August 2017.
After a careful sorting and de-stemming the grapes are gently pressed after a minimum maceration time. Throughout this brief period our winemaker Helena Lindberg, combining excellent technical knowledge with a gifted natural palate, assesses the juice in order to obtain the specific colour and taste desired by Sophia and Lodovico Antinori. The juice subsequently goes through the alcoholic fermentation in a temperature controlled stainless steel tank.
The 2017 Sof has a lifted nose with floral and fruity notes, a creamy palate in fine balance with a refreshing acidity and a clean, lingering finish.
The wine rests for five months in stainless steel vats prior to bottling. Special attention has been given to the presentation to the Bottle, a satin finished amphora- shape with the signature, SOF, in relief. The production is limited to 10500 bottles.
