APPELLATION Brunello di Montalcino DOCG
GRAPE VARIETY 100% Sangiovese
VINTAGE NOTES 2015 will be remembered as a truly textbook year. Winter was essentially mild with temperatures within the average and abundant rainfall in January and February. The budding occurred in the second week of April. The second part of April and the entire month of May were rich in rainfall and sunny days; all this led to a regular development of the vegetative cycle, to an excellent accumulation of water in the soil and a regular and prosperous flowering that ended around the end of May. June and July were dry and warm, slightly above average. During the second week of August, precipitations lowered the temperatures and helped the ripening process considerably. August and September continued with significant differences in temperature range between day and night which led to a balance between acidity, tannins and almost perfect grape sugars.

After that, spontaneous fermentation without added yeasts follows and maceration is facilitated by frequent pressing. Everything takes place in conical steel vats at controlled temperature for 25 days.

Bright red, young and intense. The aroma is pleasantly fresh with scents of dark fruit, exotic white fruit and hints of spices. On the palate, depth blends with the perfectly ripe tannins, symbol of an exceptional vintage such as 2015. The finish is greatly balanced, revealing the excellent aging potential.
