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 oak barrels where it will carry out the alcoholic fermentation; at the end of that, wine is poured, and it is again put into barrels with its fine lees, where it continues its aging period with weekly stirring for 9 months.

TASTING NOTES:

Golden yellow color, exotic fruit aromas in addition to aromatic 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
