Rosso di Montalcino

VARIETAL: 100% Sangiovese
Limestone-based soil with balanced content of clay and schist, located at altitude of 350m, from where it benefits
from sea breezes carried on from Maremma. Montalcino is undoubtedly one of the most suitable winegrowing
areas in Italy and Brunello is proof of this. The production area includes the whole municipality of Montalcino,
bordered by the Ombrone, Asso and Orcia rivers.
The grapes are hand-picked in late summer when they are perfectly ripe, beginning as early as the end of
September and continuing through to the half of October. After de-stemming, the grapes are pressed in
compressed air vats. After this, the must obtained begins to ferment. Fermentation and maceration on the skins,
takes place in stainless steel vats for 15 days
it is brilliant and limpid to the eye, with a ruby red colour; its perfume is intense and persistent with marked
notes of wild red berries. In the mouth the wine appears well-structured, smooth along with a notable aromatic
persistence. Piccini Rosso di Montalcino is an elegant wine, full bodied wine and especially appealing.
