    Winemaker Notes

    The BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO "UGOLAIA" DOCG is from the 5-acre Ugolaia Vineyard (planted in 1978), is a top cru from a top vintage. While great now, it will continue developing and improving over the next two decades. Density of the vines is twice as high as the remaining vineyards' - over 1,800 per acre versus 1,150/a. - with crop yields correspondingly even lower than the regular Brunello's; terrain is particularly favorable, conducive to extraordinary levels of concentration and complexity.

    Lisini, Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy
    Image of winery
    Located a few miles south of Montalcino itself, at Sant'Angelo in Colle, the fourteenth-century towered villa is steeped in one of the appellation’s most beautiful and "wildest" landscapes, surrounded only by woodland and vineyards at an altitude of 1312 feet above sea level. Typically built in stone and terracotta tiles, the villa itself blends into this natural backdrop with a harmony that is all Tuscan. The Lisini estate, covering a total of 380 acres and comprising one of the finest, most historical crus in the Montalcino appellation, has been in the Lisini family since the early 1700s. Under the tutelage of Elina Lisini, this superb terroir has fulfilled its exceptional promise. Located in the hills a little south of Montalcino itself, overlooking the Orcia valley (an area conducive to full, potent Brunellos), it was one of the very first to produce and bottle this noble wine. The vineyards now cover almost 49 acres and include the high-rising, 3.7- acre cru of Ugolaia. Lisini's unique soil, together with state-of-the-art vinification, yield a model Montalcino range.
