Le Focaie, which means "flint", derives its name from the rich mineral deposits found in Maremma, Tuscany.
Maremma Toscana DOC
Before the grapes are vinified, they are machine-harvested, de-stemmed, and then gently crushed. The must is then placed in vertical fermenters for about 20 days at a temperature of 82° F. After malolactic fermentation, the wine is placed in 350-liter French oak barrels and aged for twelve months. Following barrel aging, the wine spends an additional three months aging in the bottle.
