Sangiovese

Description

Rosso di Montalcino is a different interpretation of Sangiovese, characterized by a great potential for cellar evolution but aged for a shorter period in wood (22 months in oak barrels), preserving characteristics of rustic youth, fruity exuberance and a distinctive saline and earthy profile that is typical of all Fonterenza Sangiovese. It is mostly from their three plots; Bosco, Alberello and Strada, vinified separately before a final blending.

Terroir:  galestro with quartz

Average age of vines: 35 years old

Vinification: Grapes are hand-harvested and alcoholic fermentation is done in open tank for 15 days. It's then aged for 18 months in oak barrels without any filtration. 

Sulphur < 50ml/L
