Montalcino – Siena – Località Sant’Angelo in Colle. Hilly lands oriented South-South/West.
Red meat, roasts and noble game.
18 months in new (2/3) Allier, Tronçais and Blois 225 litre oak barriques, then followed by more than one year ageing in bottle.
Very deep with shining purple reflexes.
Powerful, the varietal inviting fruit, typical of the “Cabernet Sauvignon”, is greatly strengthened by the inviting noble oak species.
Full and warm. A huge structure of mature tannins surrounds a full and sensual body leading to a long and very elegant aftertaste typical of the “great” wines of Montalcino.
Fermentation in 150 hl inox tanks, shallow and wide, allowing an extended surface of skins-must contact, followed by an excellent extraction of the polyphenolic richness of the skins. Around 20 days’ maceration, at a controlled temperature below 30° C, punch down is done daily.
