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

Produced only in excellent vintages based on a meticulous selection of the harvested grapes. Temperature controlled vinification in Horizon hybrid stainless steel & wood tanks, with skin contact for 12-14 days. Aged in barriques for 30 months, plus at least 12-18 months bottle aging before release.

THE WINEMAKER COMMENT

Estate-bottled in limited quantities only in exceptional years from our finest “Poggio all'Oro” vineyard, where in near perfect conditions of climate, soil and sun the celebrated Sangiovese grape achieves greatness. Aged for a total of five years, including a minimum of two years in French oak barriques, this wine emerges with exceptional depth, character and aging potential.

SEASONAL OUTCOME

The growing season started slightly late, followed by abundant rain in May and June. Temperatures in June were cool and well below seasonal averages; n the beginning of July the temperatures began to warm up and became quite hot by mid-month. Temperatures cooled down again in August again with notably cool nights, which significantly contributed to the quality of the fruit, both in terms of aromas and natural acids. From the middle of August through the months of September and October rainfall was scarce, resulting in an excellent harvest.

TASTING

Very intense and deep color, with ruby red still very bright. On the nose at first, it is very sweet and aromatic, with hints of tobacco, peanut butter, blackberry, violet, and a finish of leather. What has been promised by the aroma is fully kept in the mouth: the structure is velvety and wide, deep, soft and appealing, well supported by a good acidity with tannins of great elegance and maturity. The aromas of mouth are very long with hints of spices and notes of roasted coffee. The great harmony is surprising, especially because the wine has not yet aged in bottle.
