Vineyards 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.
Winemaking 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.
