Ottomani was born in 2006 as a four friends’ project, who decided to start their own venture after graduating in oenology at the University of Florence and following different job experiences in important wineries in the area. Slowly, but steadily, we set up a little farm for the production of our wine and olive oil. Working with autochthonous varieties only and using biological-biodynamical techniques of cultivation and winemaking, we decided, from the beginning, not to use any chemical, preferring to work exclusively with agronomical methods which are sustainable for the environment.

Vinification: Harvest exclusively by hand. Spontaneous fermentation conducted by yeasts naturally present on the grapes. At leat 30 days of maceration, possible only with perfect grapes what allow the extraction of a greater number of phenolic compounds present in the grapes (responsible for colour and structure) and a long aging. During this period the must is subject to several operations such as pumping-over, cap-crushing and delestage.
