Vintage 2017


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

Season conditions:

The 2017 season saw the coming together of the two main climatic change phenomenon: drought and heat wave. Rain was almost totally absent already from the end of 2016 and temperatures in the summer were rather high. A rainstorm on August 13 and the ensuing lower temperatures at night, allowed the vineyard to ripen the limited production, delivering very healthy grapes with considerable complexity in terms of aromas, elegant tannins and excellent natural acidity.


All the grapes from Col d’Orcia vineyards, 65% Merlot, 20% Cabernet, 15% Syrah. 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 June 2017.

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. (completed on May 2018). The wine reached its stability during the second winter, when it underwent the seasonal cold temperatures in order to get a clear  wine in a natural way. After bottling the wine ages in bottle.
