Rosso di Montalcino DOC

Rosso di Montalcino DOC

Vintage 2011


Production area:
Montalcino – Siena - Sant'Angelo hill overlooking the Orcia River, facing South-South/West and exposed to sun ray all day long.
Average height 300 m above sea level.

Weather conditions:
The heavy spring rains and the high temperatures brought the growing season forward ten/fifteen days causing an early “veraison”  in the second decade of July. Between late August and early September the temperatures were high. Early harvest of over a week, with very low yields but good quality of the grapes.

Sangiovese, locally called "Brunello" (the same variety used in the production of 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

Deep ruby red with violet hues.

Vinous, ample and complex. The deep hints of ripe red fruits are perfectly balanced with the pleasant scents of the oak.
