The 5 hectares of specialized vineyards in Montalcino are at an altitude of 350 meters above sea level and are surrounded by woodlands of ilex, oak and arbutus which are characteristic of Montalcino’s hillside habitat. The soil is predominantly composed of marl and limestone which renders this terrain particularly rich in mineral salts.
Pairs well with pasta prepared with meat sauces, mushrooms or truffles; complex rice, main courses of pork or veal with sauces.
"A dense and chewy red with dark berry and walnut character. A more extracted style. Full body. A little overdone but should come around with a year or two of bottle age."

"A little lean with some pleasant dried berry and black tea character. Medium body and a clean finish. Drink now."
