GRAPES: 100% Sangiovese Grosso
DETAILS OF PRODUCTION: Located in the south east of the Montalcino region close to the beautiful medieval village of Castelnuovo dell’Abate, the estate of Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona can trace its roots back to the 17th century. They have a total holding of 220 hectares of the rolling Tuscan hills bordered by the Orcia River which helps moderate the temperature of this hot dry part of the region.
The altitude of the vineyard varies from 240 to 360 meters above sea level. Fermentation occurs in temperature-controlled stainless steel and glass concrete vats. Ageing takes place in 7.5-20 Hl Slavonian oak barrels.
