Sangiovese from Montalcino – Siena – the hill overlooking the Orcia River, facing South- South/West and exposed to sun ray all day long. Average height 300 m above sea level.

Tasting notes:
Ruby with violet hues. On the nose: ample, complex with huge notes of ripe red berry fruits, and plum well balanced with the spice from the oak. On the palate it's well-structured with soft ripe tannins - perfectly balanced with the notes originating from the long ageing in the barrels. Finishes with a full and persistent aftertaste.

Vinetage conditions:
The heavy spring rains and the high temperatures brought the vegetative growth forward ten/fifteen days causing an early “veraison” in the second decade of July. Between late August and early September, the temperatures were high. The harvest was early by over a week, with very low yields but good quality of the grapes.

Production:
Fermentation on the skins for about 18-20 days, at controlled temperature below 28° C. in 150 hl wide and shallow stainless steel tanks, designed and built in order to extract tannins and colour efficiently but delicately. Aged for 4 years, 3 of which in 25-50 and 75 hl oak casks from Slavonia and Allier followed by at least 12 months of refinement in bottles placed in storage at controlled temperature.

Analysis:
Alc: 14,5% TA: 5,8 g/l
