Weather conditions
Excellent vintage! Not very cold winter with regular rainfall. Spring characterized by heavy rains, that accelerated the vegetative development. A hot summer with no rains allowed to rebalance the phenological phases.
The optimal ripening of the grapes led to wines with incredible acidity and intense aromas.

Clonal selection of Sangiovese, locally called Brunello. Manual harvest with accurate grape selection of the best bunches on October 4th.

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

33 months in a small Allier cask of 10hl.
Bottled on December 17th, 2019 and refined since then in bottle in a temperature controlled storage room.

Deep ruby red of impressive intensity.

The small cask has gently released the spices from the oak that are deeply going along with the fine and elegant Sangiovese aromas.

Great structure and ripe tannins are in balance with volume and acidity. Armony and elegance express the perfect vintage. Long, clean and mineral aftertaste.
