The vineyards are planted at an altitude of between 350 and 500m a.s.l. with an exposure to the South East. The vines are at least 15 years old and planted in a gravely soil with small amounts of clay and alluvial deposits. The harvest took place by hand during the last weekend in September and the first week in October. The fermentation lasted nearly 3 weeks with the juice kept in contact with the skins. After the fermentation process the wine was aged in French and Slovenian oak for a period of 2 years. Once bottled the wine was allowed to rest for a further 6 months prior to release.

Powerfully structured, this is an austere, warm, amply flavoured wine with a deep ruby to brick-red colour and a richly complex, dry, full and soft palate. A muscular, full-bodied wine with great richness.

Wine Reviews: Gold Medal Winner, Decanter Wine Awards 2007.

Ready to Drink? Not really matured as yet but with decanting the wine opens up beautifully. Will keep 3-5 years further though.

Food and Wine Matches: Brunello di Montalcino is the King of Tuscan wines. It should accompany strongly flavoured meats and game.
