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 was followed by an unpredictable spring, where colder than usual days slowed down initial growth. The temperatures picked up in the summer, and late in the season it was very warm dry, with very little rain, which allowed the grapes to ripen gradually and consistently. Particularly in September, night temperatures were often low, favouring acidity and overall elegance. Harvest was in early October.
