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 relatively mild winter was followed by the early onset of a hot spring with much rain. This led to an early growing season, with very vigorous growth. Late summer was very hot, and meant he grapes ripened earlier than usual, with particularly high concentrations. Harvest began at the very end of September.
