The seven-hectare vineyard he found is perfectly situated, with a full southern exposure. This allows for incredible ripeness even in the old, low-vigor Sangiovese clones he favors. Grapes are harvested by hand and then strictly sorted to eliminate sub-standard fruit. The fermentation takes 25-30 days in vat and stainless steel before racking into large Slovenian oak casks and smaller French oak barriques. Only the finest lots are selected for Brunello.

Very focused, with blackberry, raspberry and lightly floral character. Full-bodied, with very good chewy tannins and a long, ripe aftertaste. Best after 2006. 1,660 cases made.
