Rosso di Montalcino
Rosso di Montalcino is a wine with its own unique identity and a strong personality. This wine’s style highlights the freshness and integrity of the Sangiovese from this terroir and balances intensity with an immediate appeal.
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.
Grapes are hand harvested in small 17 kg crates during the last days of September

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.
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.
