This is Montalcino’s hottest area. Here the soil consists of sandstone and rocky marl, which allows the production of well-structured, mineral wines.

An exceptional wine, very elegant, complex and rich in minerals. Produced from hand-harvested grapes and fermented naturally for two weeks after soft pressing and destemming. The wine is aged in 54hl Allier French oak barrels for 48 months. Refined in bottle for one year minimum. Clean and intense bouquet with very ripe fruit and herbal nuances. Well balanced, fresh and intense in the mouth. Lasting and mature tannins. Black fruit and spice accompany soft vanilla flavours. Intense finish.

Vintage Report

5 STARS Wines from the 2012 vintage vaunt a remarkable structure, very high levels of polyphenols and a deep color intensity. The traits of the Montalcino soils, combined with our agronomist’s expertise, ensured that the vegetation was managed well and the balance in the vineyard was maintained in a very dry hot.
