Description

Luigi Fabbro and Katia Nuassbaum meticulously tend just 4 hectares at this small nirvana North-West of Montalcino. Praised by critics and peers they have been described as having “an incredible clarity and pureness of fruit that is unequalled in the region”.

The vineyards are at 300m altitude where a meandering stream runs through it attracting much wildlife. Worked by hand, organically and biodynamically, the canopy is well-managed to produce healthy, juicy, thick-skinned grapes.  After fermentation, the wine spent 5 years ageing in large Slovenian oak barrels before bottling by hand.

“Brunello that shows the ripeness of the vintage. At the same time the rich plum and cherry character is buttressed with bright acidity and dusty tannins. It’s chewy yet polished. Fresh at the end. Drink in 2023 and onwards. From organically grown grapes.”
James Suckling – 94 Points, Nov, 2021
