Both winter and spring were mild in 2016, contributing to early budding, and remarkable vegetation for the vines. Summer was cool and mild, therefore ripening process was slower and very balanced. This excellent vintage shows ripe tannins, rich colors, and very good acidity. Harvest started slightly earlier than usual, but it was completed in mid-October, which is typical in the best and most celebrated vintages of Montalcino. The ripeness of the grapes brought great balance, and we can expect rich wines with outstanding elegance.

The harvesting of grapes to make Brunello di Montalcino began on 19 September, earlier than previous years. The variety of soils and altitude of the vineyards enabled an excellent blending of the grapes vaunting different qualities.

Complexity, superb structure, and an inviting, mouth-filling palate are the hallmarks of this Sangiovese grown in the 42-hectare Capanna vineyard facing towards the Mediterranean sea. A garnet-flecked ruby red, it releases generous, emphatic fragrances classic to Sangiovese, developing a near-endless progression notable for its beautiful balance.
