IPSUS is born from the perfect combination of a land ideal for growing Sangiovese vines and the passion of a noble family dedicated to the art of winemaking since 1435. Located in the municipality of Castellina in Chianti, Il Caggio is a medieval hamlet which sits within it own unique paradise, surrounding by rolling hills adorned with indigenous Sangiovese vines. The heavenly "clos" is what caught the Mazzei's family eye. It is from these 6.5 hectares at the heart of the 150 hectares belonging to the hamlet that the Mazzei family have produced an extraordinary wine. Il Caggio resides between 310 and 361 meters above sea level, with vineyards exposed partially southeast and the majority southwest. The soil is composed mainly of calcareous clay and marly limestone from the Upper Cretaceous era. Combined with the Mediterranean microclimate, the terroir lends itself perfectly to a creation of a masterpiece.

2018 Ipsus

Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG
100% Sangiovese
Red wine

IPSUS has a distinguished power which represents its own unique terroir, Il Caggio. Fine and silky tannins are combined with red berries, cherries and the aromas of blood orange peel. Touches of violet, roses and lavender are seasoned with delicate spices and crushed stones. IPSUS, with its tightly-wound texture and long, savoury finish, is an electrifying wine with great ageing potential.
