This wine is considered the little brother of “Brunello”, but only

because, although made from the same grape, it is aged in the

barrel for only one year. The vineyards are located at 320 m above

sea level south of the town of Montalcino, on land that slopes

downwards towards the Maremma area. The ideal composition of the terrain (clayey and sandy) and a highly favorable microclimate results in high quality grapes perfect for making the full-bodied Brunello di Montalcino.
