New Products in store: RBW Wines

Posted by Belvedere di San Leonino srl on

Dear costumers,

A particularly summer ended and the good news is that in Chianti region we have harvested an excellent
grape! With October we can stop drinking fresh water in hot hours and start drinking wine in cold ones!

At the moment Belvedere wines are not for sale, we are going to bottle them, as you know ours is a
small production so in order not avoid leaving you without wine we would like to offer you something new
and really unique.

A special product, aged in a porcelain egg, born from the passion for wine of Robin Baum, who studied
oenology in England
and after spending his whole life as an importer of excellent Italian wines, he began
to produce special wines in porcelain eggs at the companies with which he had collaborated in Italy.

Why ceramic and why egg shaped? Ceramic vases are made of sandstone and stoneware are not lined
and so are porous so as not to add extra flavours, allowing natural oxidation during the ripening period.
The shape of the egg allows better circulation of the wine in the container and natural temperature
control. "My wines are round, balanced, fruity and soft."
