Winemaker's Notes:

Ruby red with purple nuances. On the nose, cherries and fruit jam aromas. Thre is just the right amount of tannins, making for a harmonic, balanced wine.

Blend: 100% Sangiovese

My Notes:

About Podere Brizio:

The production area is the entire territory of Montalcino’s county, at 40 km south from Siena. It’s delimited by the Valle dell’Orcia, dell’Asso and dell’Ombrone and it’s spread over approximately 16 km with a surface of 2400 hectares.

Montalcino took shape during different geological eras, as a consequence, its soil results made of different compositions. In order to cultivate grapevines, only the hilly vineyards, well displayed and at an altitude under 600 meters above the sea’s level are regarded as suitable winegrowing areas. Our vineries are displayed at an altitude of 200 meters a.s.l. to 320 meters a.s.l.
