PRODUCTION AREA

Over 170 hectares of estate vineyards in the southern hill area of Montalcino. Altitude: 220 meters above sea level. Position: Hillside.

GRAPE VARIETIES

100% Sangiovese.

METHOD OF PRODUCTION

The meticulous grape selection (yield not exceeding 6 metric tons/ha) is followed by vinification in temperature-controlled Horizon hybrid stainless steel & wood tanks, with skin contact for 10-12 days. The wine ages for 2 years in various sizes oak barrels, 350-liter barriques, and 60- and 120 hl barrels; the wine is subsequently aged in bottle for an additional 8-12 months before release.

THE WINEMAKER COMMENT

A "classic" of our production, this Brunello di Montalcino is obtained with clones of Sangiovese selected after 20 years of research on this unique grape and is aged in French oak barrels of 350 lt as well as in 60-120 hl Slavonian barrels. The most aristocratic combination of Montalcino tradition with winemaking modernity.

SEASONAL OUTCOME

The vine’s growth cycle started at the right time with particularly mild and dry weather in April and May. Sunny days in June were then followed by copious rainfall in mid-July, accompanied by a significant drop in temperature. August was fairly cool, but the region was then covered by an anti-cyclone weather pattern originating from Africa, which led to a spike in temperatures, reaching well above the average for the period and lasting for around two weeks, putting the vines under hydric stress and accelerating the ripening. September and October were sunny and dry with very hot temperatures.

TASTING

The color is deep garnet red. The scent is sweet and rich of delicate hints of jam, plum, mature cherry, licorice and tobacco, perfectly harmonized with a light and elegant leather note. The structure is powerful and characterized by silky and sweet tannins. The fish reveals the remarkable persistence of a great wine with an extraordinary aging potential.
