Grapes are hand-harvested, destemmed, and go through the optical sorter to discard any unwanted grapes. The must is kept in contact with the skins for about 20 days in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Remontage is performed every 8 hours with one delestage per week. Malolactic fermentation takes place in large French oak casks of 48 hl. The wine rests for 10 months in used oak barrels and then 4 months in bottle.

Grape varieties:  95% Sangiovese, 5% Caniolo

Altitude: 450m

Vineyard age: 20-year-old vines

Grape yield: 60 qt/ha

Exposure: Southeast

Soil: Galestro and limestone, mostly clay with gravel-size stones

Alcohol: 14%

Tasting Notes: This is a sensual wine with black cherry fruit notes, tobacco and hints of licorice and spice. The elegant tannins balance well with the fruit, showing an optimal maturity of the grapes. The long, juicy, fresh and pleasant finish, with crispness and texture, expresses the authentic character of Sangiovese from Castelnuovo Berardenga.
