<p>Dedicated vineyards sloping down from the historic Poggio alle Mura Castle crowning our estate. We chose this area, particularly suited to growing Sangiovese, to plant the first vineyard resulting from over a decade of research to isolate the optimal selection of clones to produce consistently outstanding Brunello di Montalcino. The vines were planted in 1992. Altitude: 210-220 meters above sea level. Position: Hillside.</p>
100% Sangiovese, from a combination of estate selected clones.
The grape harvest is followed by a maceration of 12-14 days. Temperature-controlled alcoholic fermentation (27-29°C) takes place in the Horizon hybrid stainless steel and wood tanks. 90% of the wine is aged for 2 years in French oak barriques and the remaining 10% in large casks. Before release, only in the sixth year after the harvest, the wine is bottle-aged.
An extraordinary vintage, 2007, for the launch of this Riserva, which rounds out the family of Poggio alle Mura. This Brunello stands out for a rare elegance, together with an immense concentration and power that make it suitable for long aging.
