Often compared to top-quality Brunello, because this was grown as a Brunello, with tiny yields from fossil-filled vineyards. After two years of aging, all casks are tasted and are subsequently chosen for Rosso or Brunello.
Located in Castelnuovo dell’Abate, facing Orcia Valley where Orcia River runs through it, the harvest takes place manually and the grapes are carried into the cellar in small cases. The grape selection follows the same precision that is used for Brunello.
This is bright, pretty and vivacious, with incredible aromatics. The palate is elegant and complex, superior to many Brunellos. This is a work of the highest craft: Brunello intensity meets Burgundian finesse.
