To produce a Riserva from the superlative 1999 vintage, thereby increasing the complexity of the Brunello di Montalcino Crocedimezzo represented a real challenge for the estate's young technical team who wanted to give our clients a product to enjoy and cherish for special occasions.

Mission accomplished with a great result! Grapes were selected exclusively from the Banditelli vineyard. The wine underwent a prolonged vinification with the goal of transferring the enormous potential of the land into a precious nectar of great structure and rare equilibrium.

The entire production totals 1.500 0,75 bottles and 250 Magnums. The 1999 Riserva was aged for 3 years in Slavonian oak barrels. In the last year of ageing, part of the wine was placed in 3 225 litre barriques of Allier oak.
