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 selected grapes are vinified in Horizon hybrid stainless steel & wood tanks, with an average maceration of 7-10 days. After an aging period of 10-12 months, partially in barriques and partially in large oak barrels, followed by an additional 6 months in bottle before release.

THE WINEMAKER COMMENT

A super-classic of Montalcino and Banfi. A wine able to match the elegance and solidity of its elder counterpart with a freshness and directness that make it one of the most versitile wines within Banfi’s offer. Very enjoyable when released, it is also suitable for a long aging.

SEASONAL OUTCOME

The growing cycle began slightly in advance. We had a very rainy spring and cool temperatures, and well below the seasonal average, in the summer months. This meant that the maturation of the grapes took place with a delay of about 10 days compared to the previous years. The harvest of early varieties was facilitated by a rather cool beginning of September, while late varieties enjoyed a rise in temperatures in the last decade of the month, which allowed for a full ripening of the grapes.

TASTING

Ruby red color, very intense. The bouquet is complex, with fruity notes of cherry, plum, small berries along with hints of vanille, coffe and tobacco. The structure is large and well balanced thanks to the pleasant and vibrant acidity. The finish is remarkably persistent
