"Brunello di Montalcino Cerretalto" made from Sangiovese grown in the vineyard of the same name in the eastern part of Montalcino, which is located in a natural amphitheater on the river Aso. Thanks to the microclimate, soil, low yield vines and more attention of winemakers, wine has a unique character and an excellent balance of taste. This wine is produced every year, but only in the seasons when the crops were deemed to be committed. Being a very late ripening variety, Sangiovese harvested in mid- to late October. Fermentation and maceration lasts 19 days. After that, the wine matures in small French oak barrels for 27 months and then 30 months in bottles. This wine is a very long storage potential, it can develop its rich aroma and amazing taste over the years.
