Brunello Di Montalcino


This exceptional wine is a pure expression of Sangiovese grapes grown at an altitude of 400 meters above sea level, where they thrive in the nurturing embrace of marl and galestro-rich terrain. Trained using the spurred cordon method, these grapes are carefully harvested and then vinified in steel tanks, with precise control over fermentation temperature. The result is a wine that undergoes maceration on the skins for an impressive 20 to 30 days, extracting the essence of its varietal character. To further enhance its complexity and depth, this wine matures gracefully for approximately 48 months in Slavonian and French oak barrels, each with an average capacity of around 30 hectoliters. The result is a harmonious fusion of terroir, grape variety, and craftsmanship, creating a wine that is a true testament to the artistry of winemaking.
