Montalcino – Siena – Sant’Angelo in Colle. South facing hillside slopes of Eocene origin enjoying a favourable sunny exposure all day long. Average height 300 m. above sea level. Optimal climate conditions, good rainfall in spring, hot and dry summer with regular temperatures. The weather was ideal in September with pleasant temperatures during the day and fresh during the night. The maturation evolved perfectly.

refinement in bottle.
Alcohol: 14 % vol.
Total Acidity: 5.5 g/l
Colour: Deep ruby red with violet hues.
Aroma: Intense, fruity and elegant, the evident hints of ripe red fruits (blackberry and raspberry) are perfectly balanced with the pleasant scents of the oak originated by the ageing in the barrels.

The Banditella vineyard, planted in 1988 with the clones of Sangiovese selected among Col d’Orcia clones over the past 10 years, provides the basis for one of the most excellent expressions of Brunello di Montalcino. Manual harvest with rigorous selection of the bunches.
