Our Brunello di Montalcino comes from a lush loamy field on the northern slopes of Montalcino. Full-bodied and structured, it has been described in glowing terms as being fruity, opulent, corpulent, luxurious and delicious.
Lush field on the slopes of Montalcino, with strong clay and marl elements. Good ventilation and sun exposure ensures optimal ripeness each year.
A mild winter and a warm spring with little rainfall meant vines developed ahead of schedule, but with contained vigour. In late spring, rainfalls followed by sunny dry weather accelerated growth, whilst a dry and breezy August, complete with fresh nights, ensured perfect ripening of the grapes. We began harvesting at the end of September, in fantastic weather conditions.
