Estate vineyards, on the southern hills of Montalcino. Altitude: Merlot: 170 m above sea level, Cabernet Sauvignon: 220 m above sea level. Position: Hillside.
Merlot (60%), Cabernet Sauvignon (40%).
Produced only in favorable vintages. The two varieties are vinified separately in Horizon hybrid stainless steel & wood tanks, with variable maceration between 8 (Merlot) and 18 (Cabernet) days. Alcoholic fermentation is followed by malolactic fermentation which takes place in barriques in temperature controlled areas. A 20-months aging period at a controlled temperature of 15° C follows. In the first 12 months the varieties age separately and then are blended and aged as a blend for the following 8 months.
Estate-bottled only in exceptional vintage years, this SuperTuscan integrates the best tradition of the noble French grapes of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon with the extraordinary Montalcino terroir. An austere wine, with a rare concentration and structure.

Deep red wine, definitely fruity with notes of spices, tobacco and coffee. In the mouth you feel the big structure, characterized by important tannins, although they remain gentle on the palate. Enjoyable since now but it also promises a good aging potential.
