The vines for this cru or single-vineyard Brunello are more than 45 years old. Low yields and strict viticultural practices allowed the Sangiovese Grosso grape to reach perfect ripeness, and Tenute Silvio Nardi carefully selected the finest grapes during a manual harvest in the first half of October. After a complete destemming, the must underwent fermentation and maceration for at least 26 days at a controlled temperature. The wine then spent 18 months maturing in French (Allier) oak barriques, followed by 12 months in large Slavonian oak barrels. Subsequent aging in bottles lasted at least 24 months.

Harvest Note
Excellent weather season. Right quantity of rainfall, well distributed in the course of green and production development. Correct temperatures curve, never excessive and with remarkable excursions between day and night avoided vineyards to be stressed. The excellent vegetation conditions allowed us to delay the harvest to the first decade of October, that is the ideal period of harvest for Sangiovese.Wines of this vintage are characterized by an exceptional smoothness and concentration, full-body and persistence.
Tasting Note
This deep ruby-red wine has clean, intense and complex aromas of ripe fruit, with spice and floral notes. Mellow flavors become assertive, supported by fresh acidity. A solid structure is enhanced by supple, sweet and smooth tannins, and very good length. An excellent wine to age.
Food Pairing
Pair with roasted lamb and aged cheeses.
