Its ideal accompaniments are main courses of red meat and game. It is also excellent with cheeses, root vegetables, vegetable stews and Asian dishes.

Vinification and maturation

Temperature-controlled vinification in stainless steel and fermentation with indigenous yeasts; long maceration (six weeks). Maturation for 3 years in large (20 and 35 hl) Slavonian oak casks.

Finally, the wine clears naturally by settling in stainless steel and is then left to rest for a minimum of 18 months in bottle before release onto the market.

Production area

Montalcino,Loc. Castelnuovo dell’Abate.


More or less garnet red depending on the vintage, tending to brick-red with long aging.


Intensely vinous, with fruity fragrances of ripe cherries and plums, along with floral and spicy notes. Ethereal sensations and oaky tones from its aging in wood.


Dry, with well-balanced acidity and tannins that are evident but absolutely compatible with its considerable body; warming, rounded and harmonious.


Carried out by hand, from the end of September onwards.
