Brunello di Montalcino

Vigna Schiena d'Asino

The old vines of the vineyard give us the maximum expression of the native Sangiovese, offering us a wine of great personality and tradition where a superb and varied aromatic complexity is inserted on a solid tannic texture, dense and tight, which together with fragrant acidity is guarantee of a superb aging potential.

Brunello di Montalcino

Vigna Schiena d'Asino

The intensity and brightness of summer 2015 brought the old vines of Sangiovese to the maximum expression, giving us a wine of great personality, guided by compact and ripe tannins, never astringent, which culminate in a unique finish for elegance and depth

Brunello di Montalcino

Vigna Schiena d'Asino

The intense brightness of a long and generous summer, with good temperature ranges, allows the perfect expression of a mature and elegant tannin, present but never aggressive, which makes this wine a product of great personality and balance, with endless interminability and persistence.
