Weather conditions:

The mild winter accelerated the vegetative season, then the spring rains brought the season back to average. From the second decade of June, and for the whole month of July the temperatures raised gradually. August had notable thermal excursions and absence of rain generating optimal conditions for the perfect maturation of the grapes.


Thoroughly selected individuals of the Sangiovese variety from vineyards, at the farm, dating back to the 1940’s. Selection conducted in cooperation with the University of Florence. Small bunches resistant to parasite attacks. Average to late ripening. Manual harvest with rigorous selection of the best bunches in the vineyard at first and subsequently on a selection table in the cellar.


 Fermentation on the skins for about 18-20 days, at controlled temperature below 28° C. in 100 hl wide and shallow stainless steel tanks, designed and built in order to extract tannins and colour efficiently but delicately.

First year in tonneaux (5 hl) French oak casks, subsequently in large oak barrels and a further 12 months in the bottle at controlled temperature.
