The Folonari family makes Le Due Sorelle Brunello di Montalcino Riserva only in great vintages. Montalcino’s vineyards are sheltered by Mount Amiata and kept dry by sea breezes from across the hills to the west. Densely planted vineyards produce low average yields, allowing wines with concentration, complexity and considerable aging potential. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature, then the wine is macerated in steel vats before the malolactic fermentation. The wine is aged in Slovenian oak casks and in bottle before release.
