Fattoria Il Lago, Tuscany

Traditional and Super Tuscanesque wines from the Spagnoli Family

Fattoria Il Lago is a Tuscan Winery and Olive Oil producing country estate, situated just outside of florence near the small town of Docomano.

The estate belonged to the noble Florentine family of Bartolini-Vivai-Salimbeni hundreds of year ago, then in 1962 the farm was purchased by the Spagnoli family who began the slow process of restoring many dilapidated buildings and overhauling the vineyards and replanting the Sangiovese grape vines.

Harvesting is carried out by hand, sorted and destemmed before a gentle wine making process. Some of the wines follow a process of lightly drying the grapes in the sun before vinification in a process that the Italians called appassimento, a process that helps concentrate the sugars and polyphenols.
