Tasting Note:

Heady, complex and radiant. Beautiful and sweetly-scented aromas waft from the glass with notes of stylish ruby fruit and a ferrous, spicy minerality. Almost Pinot-esque in its seduction. So finely textured on the palate, with present but sweet tannins, a really refined supporting Sangiovese framework with a supple, long, lacy acidity which gives the wine a persistent and elegant feel. Mouth coating and intense but so vibrant and detailed and long. Magical.This wine is produced from vineyards situated at 200, 300, and 400 meters above sea level, with various expositions. The soil is poor and rocky, mainly composed of clay and limestone. The production area is located in Castelnuovo dell’Abate, facing the Orcia River valley in the South-East region of Montalcino. The harvest is made manually. The selection of the grapes is extremely rigorous, resulting in very low yields. Vinification is in oak vats, with spontaneous fermentations led by indigenous yeasts and long macerations. This wine is aged for 40 months in 30 hl Slavonian oak casks. It was bottled end of May 2020.
