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 “Helichrysum” vineyards lie at 450m altitude to the south-east of Montalcino, on south facing slopes. The soil is very varied, rocky with marl, and granite type rocks, both volcanic and sedimentary, clay, sandy-loam, red ferrous and white chalky lime. These soils have never been touched by chemicals and have healthy microbial and fungal life. Practicing organic, biodynamic and permacultural methods in the vineyards, they fertilise using estate made and managed green composts and spray the vineyards with microbes farmed from composts and forest floor material. Work in the vineyard is done by hand.
After the fermentation is completed, the wine is transferred into french barrique, together with the fine lees, to do a 5 month process of roulage, adding to the spice and a creamy mouthfeel. The wine is then racked into 25hl barrels to age for 3 years before bottling.
