Brunello di Montalcino DOCG Nastagio

Brunello Nastagio is the result of the long experience accumulated by Col d'Orcia in the development and management of the Sangiovese vineyard. Nastagio is also the result of the many Research chapters conducted over more than twenty years by Col d’Orcia with the University of Florence.  The aging in Tonneaux (500 liters) oak barrels and then in the traditional large “botti” represent the meeting point between tradition and modernity preserving the essential aspect of longevity. The polymerization and the maturity of tannins occurs during the first year of aging in the smaller barrels resulting in a decrease of the classic astringency of the variety and insuring the stabilization of color. The result of the year aging in small barrels is the production of polysaccharides, which contribute towards obtaining a full, persistent and soft wine. In the second and third years of aging in the large barrels, the wine reaches the taste-aroma balance and produces fine and elegant tertiary elements, achieving an increase in the complexity and the exaltation of the typical aromas of Sangiovese.

Nastagio (also known as Nastasio) is the name of an ancient farm house of the “Fattoria di Sant’Angelo”, which was already included in the maps of Grand Duke Leopold.
