100% Sangiovese Grosso grown in galestro soils at an altitude of 400m. Alcoholic fermentation is carried out in stainless steel; malolactic fermentation follows in oak. The wine ages for three years in large Slavonian oak casks. The particularly cool and windy vineyards yield a racy and vibrant Brunello that is loaded with ripe fruit and great depth.

Wine SpectatorThis lively red exhibits cherry, strawberry, eucalyptus, tobacco and mineral flavors. The firm tannins work in tandem with the bright acidity, leaving a long, refreshing finish that echoes the fruit, earth and savory elements. Best from 2018 through 2028. 2,100 cases imported

James Suckling"A pleasant, ripe Brunello with dried fruit, light vanilla and lemon rind. Full body, chewy tannins and a clean finish. The tannins grow. Needs a year or two to soften."

Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Brunello di Montalcino shows a dark and masculine side that distinguishes it from its peers. Black fruit aromas of plum and dried blackberry take center stage. Layers of spice, tobacco and autumn leaf fill in the rear. It's the ripeness of fruit that makes the wine feel and taste bigger. That fruit intensity does not come from over extraction or excessive oak use. This wine is well managed and feels relatively free of too much winery intervention. Overall, it shows good balance and it faithfully reflects the warm vintage.
