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

Season conditions:

Winter rains in the seasonal average with some snowfalls that helped compensate the water shortage in the soil. The beginning of the spring was mild with occasional rains. June and July were hot. Light and intermittent rains during the first three weeks of August with average temperatures of 25°C. During the first week of September the temperatures was 30°C. with some rainy days. The harvest started around mid September.

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.

All varieties are fermented separately in stainless steel tanks. About 12/14 days of maceration at controlled temperature (25°). Malolactic fermentation took place in concrete tanks. From there the wine went directly into barrels and barriques in spring 2019.

Separate ageing of the varieties and lots for 14 months in French oak barrels. In order to enhance the fruitiness, the Merlot cultivar is aged in 500 liters French oak tonneaux. No racking until the wine was blended (summer 2020). The wine reached its stability during the winter, when it was submitted to the seasonal cold temperatures in order to clarify the wine in a natural way. After bottling the wine aged in bottle
