Winemaking and Aging
The idea of producing a new wine in respectful harmony with the environment has matured through the different work experiences that Filippo Corsini, Duccio and Clotilde Corsini’s eldest son, lived during over a year spent traveling around the world.
Returning to Villa Le Corti, the family home and historic seat of the cellars, with this new awareness Filippo develops a defined project with his father: creating a wine that symbolizes a new production direction, capable of satisfying the biological rhythms and cycles of the vine and of nature, which in itself already has all that is necessary for the creation of a great wine.
For Filippo, the project was not just a modern translation of the example received from his family, but also an authentic philosophy of life. Clotilde and Duccio Corsini two years later, respecting the philosophy of Fico Wine, continued Filippo’s work following the 2017 grape harvest with Laura and Claudio and from that difficult year they produced the second wine imagined by Fililppo.
Therefore, 2017 marks the first vintage of Per Filo, 100% Sangiovese, dedicated to Filippo. From a less rocky part of the Vigna di Gugliaie, with the same biodynamic approach, Laura and Claudio put into practice and then bottled a wine that interprets the vision of Fico Wine winemaking. 1,976 certified organic bottles, which mark the future philosophy of Principe Corsini, its partner in the project.
Selection of grapes in the field, shelling and further manual selection; mechanical transfer in open tonneaux; fermentation 16 days; during fermentation, the daily hat immersion is manual.
Variable depending on the vintage, Per Filo 2017 has aged 18 months in the Tonneaux used for fermentation.
