Brunello di Montalcino DOCG

A unique terroir that can produce an iconic wine, the excellence of a great land and meticulous cultivation of this grape in a particular area of Montalcino, where the soil is rich in fossils, with galestro clay and alberese limestone, and can create deep, elegant and long-lived wines.
