Fabio Motta Lo Scudiere 2016

14% abv

100% Sangiovese selected from the Pieve vineyard. 25% of the fruit is whole bunch fermented in 30hl concial oak. Aging takes place for 1 year in used barriques.

“Made with stem inclusion, the goal of this Sangiovese was fresh acidity, and Fabio Motta hit the mark. The dark fruit in the 2016 Lo Scudiere has a real crunchiness to it. The wine has a mature nose for a Sangiovese, plus fresh acidity.”
91 Points, Monica Larner, Wine Advocate

The location is excellent: facing the sea, at the foot of the characteristic rolling hills of Bolgheri, with a south-west exposure. But Fabio Motta was not a novice in Bolgheri. In addition to a degree in agriculture he worked for many years alongside the esteemed producer Michele Satta, as well as his father-in-law.

This is the story of one man’s dream come true, Fabio Motta, who founded the winery in 2009 with the acquisition of 4 hectares of vines planted in 1997 within the Bolgheri DOC. The position is excellent: overlooking the sea, at the feet of the characteristic rolling hills of Bolgheri, with southwestern exposure. No newcomer to Bolgheri, Fabio has worked for many years with esteemed Bolgheri producer Michele Satta, who is also his father-in-law.

Fabio’s wines respect and reflect the characteristic traits of the Bolgheri terroir, interpreted within the unique frame of each vintage. In the cellar, Fabio works in a simple way, following his philosophy of “non-interference,” using natural yeasts and no filtering, crafting wines which excel in elegance and complexity rather than power and concentration.

In 2015 Fabio started converting his vineyards into biodynamic.
