hill area of the estate, with low to moderate incline. The soils developed on different types of sediments, from the clay sands of the marine Pliocene, deep soils with abundant and calcareous stones, to the gray-blue clays which are moderately deep mineral soils that tend to retain humidity.

Winemaking: Fermentation in temperature-controlled (20-30°C) stainless-steel tanks. Aging in French oak casks (90-60 hl.) and in French oak barrique

Tasting Notes: The result is a complex wine characterized by a bright ruby-red color. On the nose, aromas of blackberries and raspberry meet light notes of coffee and tobacco. In the mouth, the structure is wide, harmonious, and well-balanced by a marked acidity. Excellent persistence on the palate.

Food Pairing: Ideal pairing with game and medium-aged cheeses. The remarkable structure allows good aging. Serving Temperature16-18C

The Grape
A black grape widely grown in Central Italy and the main component of Chianti and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano as well as being the sole permitted grape for the famed Brunello di Montalcino.

It is a high yielding, late ripening grape that performs best on well-drained calcareous soils on south-facing hillsides. For years it was blighted by poor clonal selection and massive overcropping - however since the 1980s the quality of Sangiovese-based wines has rocketed upwards and they are now some of the most sought after in the world.
It produces wines with pronounced tannins and acidity, though not always with great depth of colour, and its character can vary from farmyard/leather nuances through to essence of red cherries and plums. In the 1960s the advent of Super Tuscans saw bottlings of 100% Sangiovese wines, as well as the introduction of Sangiovese/Cabernet Sauvignon blends, the most famous being Tignanello.
