Climate trend

Vintage 2009 was characterized by quite distinct phases. In the spring, during the early vegetative development of the vines, considerable rainfall allowed for an accumulation of water reserves to be used to relieve the rather hot and dry summer months. September was mild, with very satisfactory variations in daytime and night-time temperatures.
Ripening progressed in a uniform fashion, producing prime quality grapes. Alcohol levels were rather high with optimal degrees of total acidity and extracts. The polyphenol content was substantial and qualitatively well balanced.

Wine Spectator

The estate's 2010 Rosso di Montalcino is striking in this vintage. Savory herbs, licorice, tobacco and mint are woven together in a wine that stands out for its exceptional balance and polish.

Jancis Robinson

From the excellent 2010 vintage, this really shines with the characteristics that make the Sangiovese grape so wonderful. The crisp finish shows nuances of red berry, blue flower and forest floor.
