To be born in the middle of two great 5 star vintages and to have “only” 4 stars, represents a great challenge for our Brunello Crocedimezzo 2005, that has all the required points to be appreciated and to delight, with its noteworthy personality, even the most demanding of palates.

The first tastings that took place in our Estate Shop have already confirmed its great potential and the 2005 vintage stands as a Brunello di Montalcino vintage for “connoisseurs”.

The altitude of our vineyards, situated at 480 metres above sea level, allowed us to maintain truly extraordinary scents that, together with a good structure, confer to this wine a noteworthy capacity for aging in the bottle so that it can be enjoyed for a long time.
