Tasting Note:

So alluring, aromatic and lifted - ripe summer strawberries, almond and heather with a touch of aniseed on the finish - sumptuous sweet tannins, ripe but flowing and seamless – you could drink this now but it has a fine acid line supporting the soft fruit. Really very smart. Produced from vineyards averaging 25 years old, situated at 200, 300, and 400 metres 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 valley of the Orcia River. The harvest is made manually, and the grapes' selection follows the same precision adopted for the Brunello. Vinification is in oak vats, with spontaneous fermentations led by indigenous yeasts and extended macerations. The wine is aged for 22 months in 30 hl oak casks and was bottled in September 2020.
