The two vineyards in Santo Spirito are the last ones we bought, the second property acquired in two steps. Santo Spirito is adjacent to Guardiolaä__s northern boundary and lower in altitude as its slopes descend towards the Alcantara valley. And though adjacent, it couldnä__t be more different. An outstandingly beautiful location, gentle wide terraces flowing sweetly in striking contrast to steep, graggy Guardiola. Again, Santo Spiritoä__s soil is deep rich volcanic ash, its grass a lush emerald green, its vigorous vines displaying a well fed abundance. Santo Spiritoä__s wines are luscious and sensual, always seductive in their almost fleshy bouquet, and in their buttermilk richness. And yet thereä__s still a balance and a purity there, very sophisticated, yes, but tender as well. Generous and vulnerable at once. Duke Ellingtonä__s Sophisticated Lady. Creamy soups, Poultry, Pork, red meats. The best? Lovely evening food in lovely evening dress.
