Weather conditions

Generous vintage! Cold spring with few rains.
Summer started off with copious rains and continued with regular temperatures. Storage of water reserve led to a rich vegetative development. During September, sunny days
and fresh nights helped the grapes to reach ideal maturation.

Clonal selection of Sangiovese, locally called Brunello. Manual harvest, with strong accurate selection of the best bunches, on September 28th.

Fermentation on the skins for 20 days at controlled temperature below 28°C in 60 and 80 hl short and wide stainless steel tanks.

A total of 4 years: 2 years in Allier oak casks of 30, 20 and 10 hl; bottled on April 29th, 2022 and then refined in bottle in a temperature controlled storage room.

Deep ruby red of great intensity.

Rich and complex. The varietal notes of the Sangiovese are enhanced in an elegant way by the tertiary aromas of the ageing.

Great structure and ripe tannins are in balance with volume and acidity. Long, clean and mineral aftertaste.
