Variety: Malvasia and Trebbiano
Maesta Della Formica, meaning “majesty of the ant” is a relatively new producer founded in just 2013. After oenology and viticulture school at the University of Pisa, there began a common goal from two friends of growing Riesling in peaks of Tuscany. Along with this focus began a series of other international varieties, like those of Gamay and Syrah. The wines have very low intervention with marketing that is both playful and honest. Beyond the vines, they also cultivate other agriculture that do well in the high altitude areas of Tuscany, like chestnuts, juniper, and blackthorn.
This white blends Malvasia for its aromatics and the Trebbiano for its texture. The wine is made in an ultimately clean, fresh, and almost salty manner. The wine’s name means “scattered vines,” referring to the different sites from which the fruit is sourced.
