Nearco IGT Toscana

Vintage 2010


Production area:
Montalcino - Sant'Angelo hill overlooking the Orcia River. Soils of medium density with some limestone pebbles. Gentle slopes facing South – South/West.

Weather conditions:
Optimal climate conditions, good rainfall in spring, hot and dry summer with regular temperatures. The weather was ideal in September with pleasant temperatures during the day and fresh nights. The maturation evolved perfectly.

All the grapes from Col d’Orcia vineyards, 50 % Merlot, 30% Cabernet, 15% Syrah, 5% Petit Verdot. Vintage 2010: 40 q/ha. During the harvest, we base our selection on the search of a balanced ripeness for all the varieties except for the Syrah where we choose a slight over-ripeness to increase the complexity of the wine.

The varieties are fermented separately in stainless steel tanks. About 20 days of maceration at a controlled temperature. Malolactic fermentation takes place in concrete tanks. From there the wine went directly into barrels and barriques in February –March 2011.


Separate ageing of the varieties and lots for 12 months in French oak   barrels. In order to enhance the fruit, the Merlot cultivar is aged in 500   liters French oak tonneaux. No further racking until the wine was blended. (March 2011). The wine reached its stability during the winter, when it underwent the seasonal cold temperatures in order to get a clear   wine in a natural way.
