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 cold winter was followed by a mild spring, with adequate rainfall. Summer arrived hot and early, and the vines became very vigorous. Grapes ripened uniformly, albeit quite fast. In late summer, however, hot, dry days followed by cold nighttime temperatures slowed the ripening down, and ensured the quality of polyphenols and acidity. We harvested at the beginning of October.
