In a classic appellation as Montalcino, we follow a reallyunique approach. Only top quality and extremely ageworthy clones of Sangiovese are used for the productionof our Brunello di Montalcino.
Grapes are hand harvested in small crates and vinified in stainless steel tanks with temperature control.
Gentle extraction techniques as punching down anddelestage are used in combination with a long macerationon the skins - almost two months - to exalt the quality of thefruit and the expression of the terroir.
Our Brunello di Montalcino spends 36 months in oak andat least 12 months in bottle, before being released to themarket. An impressive array of barrels from top tonnelleries(Gamba, Baron, Taransaud, Grenier, Klaus Pauska) is usedto create the final blend.
