Wine with fruity scents of black cherry, blackberry and plum, with floral nuances of violet. Excellent structure and tannic texture, persistent and punctual in closing. It offers a lot of territoriality and a lot of qualitative excellence.

THE COMPANY

Roberto Cipresso, originally from Bassano del Grappa, began his career as a winemaker in 1987 in Montalcino, where he settled and worked for some of the most famous producers, such as Case Basse, Poggio Antico, Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona. After his first personal successes, his activity also extends to other areas of Tuscany and to companies located in the most important Italian regions. The birth of Winemaking, his agronomic and oenological consultancy group, dates back to 1999. His professional career has seen and also sees collaborations with some foreign companies. He is the creator and guide of the Winecircus project, a cellar-laboratory which, thanks to the possibility of taking advantage of particular vineyards and a brand new headquarters on the outskirts of Montalcino, is dedicated to carrying out research activities oriented to the different aspects of viticulture, in collaboration with Universities of Padua, Turin, Venice, Pisa, Florence, Udine and Palermo.

In 2013, Roberto starts a new adventure, with the production of his first Brunello di Montalcino. It all began when, over twenty years ago, Roberto Cipresso decided to buy and restore the ruins of an ancient farmhouse in one of the most beautiful places in the Montalcino countryside, between Castelnuovo dell'Abate and Sant'Angelo in Colle, with a view enchanting towards Monte Amiata. The house of Poggio al Sole, now a magnificent Resort dedicated to hosting vine and wine lovers from all over the world, is in fact flanked by the vineyard - a jewel of just one hectare in extension - which produces the grapes destined for Brunello di Montalcino. ; the Rosso, on the other hand, is obtained from the fruit of another plot, also with an area of ​​less than one hectare and with an extremely suggestive aesthetic, located near the Abbey of Sant’Antimo. The first vintages produced are respectively 2013 for the Brunello and 2016 for the Rosso, and their label, with the flowery frame associated with the figures of the square and the circle, ideally recalls an adventure from the past - a company founded in Montalcino by Roberto with some partners in 1992 - as well as some symbols dear to the history of Roberto's experimental wine line, albeit in a more elegant and authoritative framework.
