 Product Description

Vineyards

There are 80 hectares of south facing vineyards, all of which are found in the Conca d'Oro (the golden shell), an amphitheatre-shaped valley to the south of Panzano. This shape facilitates the full ripening of the grapes. The stony galestro soils allow for excellent drainage and encourage the vines to put down deep roots. The quality of the Sangiovese grapes from the Fontodi vineyards obviates the need for Merlot or other varieties as a remedial blender.

Tasting Notes

Deep ruby red in colour, with perfumes of sour cherry and plums leading to notes of leather and tobacco. Great depth of flavour, with juicy fruit and supple tannins, giving the wine a silky-smooth texture. This wine has a great structure and a finishes with a fine mineral note.
