At our winery, every wine starts as Brunello di Montalcino
and It B treated accordingly; top quality grapes are
fermented at controlled temperature and longer period of
extraction (even more than 30 days) are allowed, resulting
in a more structured and expressive wino.
It is only after one year, when the wines that have been
sitting in oak of various renowned tonnelleries (Baron.
Grenier, Klaus Pauscha, Gamba, Taransaud) for 6 months,
are tasted and decisions are made.
The more austere and tannic wines will continue their path
towards Brunello, while the more succulent, vibrant and fruit
driven ones will be bottled as Rosso di Montaldno.
