This wine is the result of a careful selection of grapes from
the Pianrosso vineyard and it has always been our most
representative wine. From this single vineyard we also select
the grapes for our Brunello Riserva.
Vineyards: The Pianrosso vineyard covers 11,69 hectares
(29,22 acres). The soil is medium grain with good levels of
marl, dating from the Eocene period. The altitude of this large
vineyard varies from 240 to 360 metres above sea level.
Grape varietal: 100% Sangiovese Grosso
Fermentation and refinement: in stainless steel and glass
concrete vats with temperature controlled through cooling
plates and jackets
Ageing: 36 months in 20-62 hl Slavonian oak barrels, followed
by a minimum of 8 month period of bottle ageing.
Colour: ruby red verging towards garnet
Organoleptic characteristics: (14,5 % vol.) The bouquet is
intense, complex, fruit-forward and spicy with hints of ripe red
berry fruits enriched by various spicy notes. Warm, soft and
harmonic on the palate. Great balance among pronounced
tannins, acidity and savouriness. This elegant wine has good
potential for further cellar ageing.
Food pairings: ideal with main courses of roasted and
stewed meat, game and mature cheese
