Montalcino is a small town nestled in the hills of the province of Siena, Tuscany. Located about 80 km from Florence, Montalcino is at the center of a relatively small wine region of about 1200 hectares, which is entirely planted with vineyards.
In 1980 Brunello di Montalcino became among the first four wines to be awarded the DOCG (Controlled and Guaranteed Denomination of Origin), thus promoting its diffusion throughout Europe and the world. The reasons for the success of this wine lie in the characteristics of the area of origin. This region, in fact, has exceptional qualities, thanks to which its producers can obtain two distinct designations from the same vineyards: Brunello and Rosso di Montalcino.
Brunello di Montalcino is a wine with an intense and persistent scent, great concentration and a long aging potential. Rosso di Montalcino, on the other hand, is a ready-to-drink product, in which elegance is combined with a young, fresh flavour.
The production area of the Bolgheri denomination extends for about 1200 hectares between the coasts of Tuscany and the village of Castagneto Carducci.
In addition, the vineyards are located at 400 mt above sea level and are therefore characterized by a good temperature variation. This shift in temperature and the exposure to sunlight, allow the grapes to reach a perfect ripening of their sugar, polyphenolic and aromatic components.
The maximum expression of this territory is the production of San Fiorenzo Bolgheri DOC. From the first taste, this red wine conveys the elegance and complexity that distinguish the wines of the area.
