Brunello di Montalcino DOCG Col d'Orcia

Vintage 2009


Production area:
Montalcino – Siena – the hill overlooking the Orcia River, facing South-South/West and exposed to sun ray all day long. Average height 300 m. above sea level.

Weather conditions:
Winter rains in the seasonal average. The heavy spring rainfalls slightly delayed the vegetation growth. Typical dry summer with few rains. Regular harvest time with healthy and ripe grapes.

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 Slavonia and Allier followed by at least 12 months of refinement in bottles placed in storage at controlled temperature.
