Overview

Our vineyard is divided into three lots of different ages ranging from the oldest at about 25 years old to the two most recent of 15 and 10 years of age. The vines are at an altitude of 420-440m above sea level and are to the south east of Montalcino in an area that is well ventilated with an excellent microclimate. The pebbly soil together with the altitude make the wine soft and well balanced in acidity. The Rosso di Montalcino is made form 100% Sangiovese Grosso grapes. Vinification takes place in the cellar of the winery located next to the vineyards in 35-40hl stainless steel vats and ageing takes place 8-22hl medium toasted Slovenian oak barrels. Today the barrels are located in two cellars: one on the estate where the oldest barrels are kept while the newer barrels are in the cellar in the historic centre of Montalcino under the family home where tastings with clients are usually held. Rosso di Montalcino stays in wood for 12 months and is released to the market the second year after the harvest after a short period of bottle ageing. Rosso is not produced annually, only when there is an abundance of grapes from the vineyards.
