Dedicated vineyards sloping down from the historic Poggio alle Mura Castle crowning our estate. We chose this area, particularly suited to growing Sangiovese,to plant the first vineyard resulting from over a decade of research to isolate the optimal selection of clones to produce consistently outstanding Brunello di Montalcino. The vines were planted in 1992.
The grape harvest is followed by a maceration of 12-14 days. Temperature-controlled alcoholic fermentation (27-29°C) takes place in the Horizon hybrid stainless steel and wood tanks. 90% of the wine is aged for 2 years in French oak barriques and the remaining 10% in large casks. Before release, the wine is bottle-aged for an additional 12 months.
Color: deep ruby red with garnet reflections.
Bouquet: rich and ample, with hints of prune jam, coffee, cacao and a light balsamic note.
Taste: full and powerful, with ripe and gentle tannins making it velvety and harmonious.
This wine is particularly suited to accompany red meat, savory game and aged cheeses. Meditation wine.
