Wine: Rosso di Montalcino Bio
Variety composition: 100% Sangiovese.
Alcoholic strength: 14.5% vol..
Vintage: 2019.
Production area: located in Montalcino, on the Sant’Angelo hill, overlooking the Orcia river.
Average vineyard altitude: 250 meters above sea level.
Climatic trend: Mild winter with minimum temperatures in January followed by rains in the second part of February. Fresh spring with rainfall. The months of June and July were sunny with only a significant rainy phenomenon. August with usual temperatures of the seasonal average. Thanks to the accumulated water reserves and the temperatures that have not reached excessively high peaks, the foliar apparatus has remained almost intact and efficient. All this has allowed a slow and homogeneous ripening of the grapes, optimal for obtaining a perfect phenolic and technological maturity. 5 star vintage.
Aging: 9 months in Slavonian oak barrels with a capacity of 75-150 hl. Refinement in the bottle follows.

Tasting Notes
Limpid, ruby red in color with purple reflections, consistent.
On the olfactory examination it is quite complex: floral, fruity and mineral. Hints reminiscent of wildflowers such as poppy and lavender; hints of dark berry fruits such as blackberry and currant, mineral hints of graphite and flint. Nuance of vanilla.
The sip is fresh, fairly balanced in its components, not very persistent, but of fine quality.
It is recommended in combination with pici all’aglione.
