All work in the organic vineyards and cellar is done meticulously by hand. Only perfectly mature, carefully selected grapes are harvested into 20 kilo cassettes. Fermented with indigenous yeasts in temperature-controlled vats, the must is pumped over and manually punched down. The wine matures for up to 3 years in 500 and 4,000 liter French oak, and ages in bottles for a minimum of 6 months.
Varietal: 100% Sangiovese
JAMES SUCKLING/ 93 pts
Walnuts, sweet berries, lemons, lavender and chocolate on the nose. Medium- to full-bodied with firm tannins. Fragrant floral and spice notes on a firm finish. A little tight for now. From organically grown grapes. Better from 2024.
VINOUS / 92 pts
A smoky mix of crushed strawberry and cherry is accentuated by minty herbs as the 2018 Brunello di Montalcino blossoms in the glass. It splashes across the palate with ripe wild berry fruits and hints of tropical citrus motivated by vibrant acidity. The 2018 tapers off with an exotic flourish of spices and florals, as subtle tannins frame this Brunello quite well. While lightly structured, this highly expressive interpretation of the vintage is already quite tempting, yet still in need of a few years of cellaring. Drinking window 2025-2032
JANCIS ROBINSON / 17++ pts
Deep ruby with orange tinges. Brooding and conveying a sense of richness, but otherwise still closed on the nose. Just a suggestion of Moroccan leather. Sappy, lively and tangy fruit on the palate with an undertow of oak. Long, mouth-filling, juicy and hedonistic. Can be approached now. (WS)
