Estate vineyards in the southern hills of Montalcino. Altitude: 120 meters above sea level. Position: Hillside.
The wine is obtained exclusively by the natural drying on the vine, which lasts until mid October and beyond. The raisined grapes are crushed and pressed; the juice is slowly fermented at 15°C for several months until 14-15% alcohol is reached. Part of the wine is aged for 1 year in French oak barriques. An adequate bottle aging period follows.
This late harvest is a historic variety of Montalcino. The taste is round, full and extremely perfumed with a hint of acidity that gives balance in the mouth.

The color is gold yellow with amber shades. The aromas are amiable and complex, with notes of candied orange, honey and licorice. On the palate, it is plenty and well balanced, sustained by a lively acidity. The finish is long and very pleasant.
