The ‘Tin’ cuvées are the most innovative wines being made at Montesecondo. The name is an homage to Silvio’s North African heritage (“Tin” means clay in Arabic), the ‘Tin’ wines are fermented and aged in clay amphora. The Sangiovese ‘Tin’ is produced from the best grapes sourced from both of Silvio’s vineyard sites, which are destemmed and fermented in unlined 250 to 350-liter amphora for six to eight months. Amphora-fermented Sangiovese seems to have become quite the trend in Tuscany though Silvio’s cuvée predated many other examples with the first release coming from the 2013 vintage.
