Brunello di Montalcino DOCG Col d'Orcia

Vintage 2007


Production area:
Montalcino – Siena - Sant'Angelo hill overlooking the Orcia River, facing South-South/West and exposed to sun ray all day long. S. Angelo in Colle. Hilly lands enjoying a favourable southern exposition which grants the vineyards with the blessing of the sun rays the whole day long. Average height 300 m. above sea level.

Weather conditions:
Mild winter with few rainfalls. High temperatures in spring followed by a moderate summer season. Helpful rainfalls in August led to a regular harvest.

Particular clones of Sangiovese, locally called “Brunello”. Manual harvest with rigorous selection of the best bunches in the vineyard at first and subsequently on a selection table in the cellar. Vintage 2007 yield: 60 q/ha, against the maximum yield allowed by the Protocol Regulation: 80 q/ha.

Fermentation on the skins for about 18-20 days, at controlled temperature below 30° C. in 150 hl wide and shallow stainless steel tanks, designed and built in order to extract tannins and colour efficiently but delicately.

4 years, 3 of which in 25-50 and 75 hl oak casks from Slavonic and Allier followed by at least 12 months of refinement in bottles placed in storage at controlled temperature.
