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.
