A highly rated wine, considered one of the best in the region
Complex and elegant, it requires time to be discovered in all its aspects. Notes of
raspberries and red cherry with herbs, cedar wood, raisins, ginger and mint. Full and rich
but also very bright, with red and dark berry flavors combined with a juicy, harmonious
acidity and silky tannins. This is an amazing expression of Brunello di Montalcino with a
Florentine steak, fillet steak, dishes with truffles or porcini
We suggest to decant the wine at least 1 hour before serving. This wine shows its best after
some years of aging but is already outstanding now.
Serve at 16-18° C

exposures. The area is close to Castelnuovo dell’Abate, in the valley of the Orcia river.
Grapes are hand picked after a careful selection. The yield is 3 - 3,5 tons per hectare. This
Brunello di Montalcino is made with 100% Sangiovese Grosso and the fermentation is
spontaneous and made in 70 hl oak casks. After the malolactic fermentation, the wine ages
for 40 months in 30 hl oak casks plus an additional 12 months in bottle.
