Rosso di Montalcino DOC

Rosso di Montalcino DOC

Vintage 2006


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 rainy winter. The delay at budburst was recovered by June. The abundant rainfalls during the spring allow to overcome easily the summer and bring the grapes to a very balanced ripeness.

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

Fermentation on grape skins for about 10 - 12 days at controlled temperature below 28° C in shallow, wide steel tanks (150 hl), in order to obtain a delicate tannin and colour extraction.

12 months, some in French oak barriques, the rest in Slavonian oak casks between 25 and 75 hl, followed by refinement in bottle.

Main Features

Ruby red with youthful violet hues.

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

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