Rosso di Montalcino DOC

Rosso di Montalcino DOC

Vintage 2004


Production area:
Montalcino - Siena - Locality Sant'Angelo in Colle. Hilly lands of Eocene origin facing South to South West, granting the vineyards the blessing of sun rays the whole day long. Average height 300 m above sea level.

Weather conditions:
Not very cold but long winter, with few precipitations. A late bud burst has limited the damages caused by the frost of April 8th, which has, none the less, reduced production in many vineyards. After the rain of April 21st, there haven't been precipitations until after harvesting. There has never been, within living memory, such a dry summer! Temperatures with ranges above 40°C in July and August.

Sangiovese, locally called “Brunello” (the same variety of the Brunello di Montalcino).

About 10-12 days of fermentation on the skins, at controlled temperature below 28°C in 150 hl wide and short stainless steel tanks, designed and built to the purpose of obtaining a delicate tannin and colour extraction.

12 months in Slavonian oak casks of 50 and 75 hl and in a smaller extent in French oak barriques. Refinement in bottle.

Main Features

Intense ruby red, with youthful violet hues.

Vinous, inviting and rich. The spices of the oak frame with elegance the full and fresh fruit.

Structured, clear and warm. The mellow tannins impress the palate and the great Sangiovese fruit of Montalcino alternates with the delicate nuances of the wood in a very long aftertaste.
