This ambitious enterprise was carefully planned by several Tuscan winegrowers. Tenuta Fertuna was founded in 1997. Fertuna, which is a combination of the words “fertility” and “fortune”, not only produces quality wines but also makes olive oil and grows cereals. This is a tribute to the Etruscan civilisations of the past who shaped this rich terroir. This vineyard is located in the Maremma region in the heart of Tuscany and spans 50 hectares. A very reliable Tuscan wine.
About the cuvée
The cuvée Lodai is produced from a blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. It is matured for one year in oak barrels (50% new), then aged for another 6 months in the bottle. When tasting, the wine has aromas of ripe fruits, spicy notes (pepper) and white tobacco. Supple on the palate, with lovely freshness, elegant tannins and great balance.

General : The «bio» designation covers certified wines produced by biodynamic or organic methods, sustainably produced wines, and «environmentally friendly» wines that are not officially certified. These designations apply to recent vintages (the date of certification, if known, is specified in the estate description). See the blog article for more information on this designation.
Biodynamic : The «biodynamic» designation is used for all estates certified as using biodynamic methods, as verified by one of the two official bodies, Demeter or Biodyvin. All wines produced by biodynamic methods are also certified as organic. This designation applies to recent vintages.
Organic : The «organic» designation covers all estates certified as using organic methods, as verified by one of the bodies approved by the Ministry of Agriculture, such as Ecocert. This designation applies to recent vintages.
Sustainable : The «sustainable» designation covers all estates certified as using integrated or High Environmental Value (level 3 Environmental Certification) techniques. This designation applies to recent vintages.
Evironmentally friendly : The «environmentally friendly» designation refers to estates practising environmentally friendly wine-growing techniques, but that have not opted for certification or who are still in the process of converting to organic agriculture or biodynamics. These estates may have adopted biodynamic principles (non-certified) or simply no longer use chemical products. This designation applies to recent vintages.
Natural : Wines which are produced without any added sulfur (or almost any) and with no other inputs. However, given that there is no official body to issue the natural wine label, it is based on winemakers’ statements. This designation applies to recent vintages.
