PRODUCTION AREA: Hilly areas at the bottom of the Sant'Antimo Abbey, Castelnuovo dell'Abate, Montalcino (SI)

VINIFICATION The grapes are left on the plant to concentrate and they are harvested manually after three or four collection passages; only the ripe grapes attacked by noble rot are collected, in favorable seasons; the must, obtained from grapes pressing, is transferred into stainless steel tanks where it will carry out the alcoholic fermentation at controlled temperature (15°/18° C); at the end of that, even with its fine lees, wine will be aging for 9 months

TASTING NOTES:

Golden yellow color, dry fruit aromas in addition to honey sensations at nose, in mouth it is sweet and balanced with a long finish. Perfect in combination with mature cheese, ideal with foie gras and typical Tuscan liver crostini

Maturing capacity in bottle:

10 years
