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
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.
