Matilde was born was in 2013 out of curiosity and fun. The plan at the time was to do a pre-harvest, that is, to thin out the quantity of grape clusters to favor a better maturation of the best parcels of Sangiovese and Sanforte. To do this, we harvested grapes that were less mature but perfectly adapted to make a rosé where it is fundamental to have a higher level of acidity and lower level of alcohol. Given the excellent results, we began to increase the quantity of grapes dedicated to our rosé and we hope to keep making more! A fun fact: the name Matilde comes from, like most of our wines, one of the younger members of the Masini family. Not only that, it is an important symbol of the city of San Miniato: the Matilde Tower. The tower was constructed in the 12th Century and is among the architectural monuments you must visit while you’re here.
