The Podere Casaccia is an organic/biodynamic farm located in the Scandicci hillside, just a few kilometers from the historic and charming city of Florence, and consists of about 12 hectares surrounded by woodlands, olive groves and vineyards. The vineyards, whose age ranges from 50 to 60 years, mainly consist of old Tuscan clones. Native vine species were planted over several years. Some were selected from existing old vines present on the farm (Sangiovese, Canaiolo and Malvasia Nera) and some came from other recently rediscovered old vines such as the Pugnitello, Foglia Tonda and some white grapes.
"Assolato" by Podere Casaccia is a dry Passito produced from Malvasia and Trebbiano grapes left to dry in well-ventilated rooms and left to ferment for 5 years in small oak barrels left deliberately partially filled. This wine is like a nectar that releases enveloping textures from honey to caramel, from dried figs to dates, with a full and soft palate that closes on citrus tones.
