Production area: Montalcino - Siena - Sant'Angelo hill facing South- South/West.

Vineyards: Olmaia. Average height: 350 m above sea level. Planted in 2005.

Weather conditions: Winter was rather dry with low temperatures in January and February. Spring rains, within the seasonal average, provided the water reserve necessary for the months of July and August. September was temperate with good day/night temperature excursions allowing a perfect ripeness of the grapes.

Grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon, clones coming from Bordeaux with sparse bunches and small berries. The choice of harvest time was based on finding a balanced maturity.  The harvest, exclusively by hand allowed a rigorous selection of the best bunches in the vineyards and then on the selection table in the cellar.

Vinification: Fermentation in 50 hl stainless steel tanks.  About 15/18 days of maceration at a controlled temperature of 25°C. 2 daily pump-over and 3 long “délestages” on the 5th and 7th day of fermentation were carried out. Malolactic fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks. First racking directly into barriques in April-May 2017.

Ageing: 18 months in medium-toasted French oak barrels (95%) and American oak barrels (5%). The wine reached its stability during the second winter in wood the seasonal cold temperatures made it possible to clarify the wine in a natural way. After bottling the wine was aged in a bottle before release.
