Trebbiano + small percentage of co-planted Malvasia. Old-vine, biodynamically farmed estate fruit is hand-harvested, destemmed and put with nothing but indigenous yeasts into 250-to-350-liter, Spanish-made, unlined clay amphorae. The skin maceration is of variable length: 8 months for 2015, then just 6 months for 2016. The wine is racked and bottled unfined and unfiltered. 2013 was Silvio's first vintage of white Tin (he makes a 100%-Sangiovese Tin as well). "TÏn" is Arabic for "clay", a nod to his family's time living in North Africa.
