Truly a great year! The fruit of an almost perfect summer and then a cool and breezy September that enabled an extraordinary ripening process of the Sangiovese grapes.

The harvest that took place according to tradition during the first days of October and that was followed by a straightforward fermentation resulted in a product that was the fruit reaped from the labour in our vineyard.

The 9 months aging in 2.5 hl oak barrels, a prerogative of the Tenuta Crocedimezzo Rosso di Montalcino d.o.c., enabled us to obtain a wine with a fresh taste and at the same time suitable for important dishes: in short a great Rosso, able to satisfy the most demanding plates.
