Brunello di Montalcino

Vigna Loreto

The nobility and purity of the indigenous Sangiovese are enhanced by the stone and tuff of the Loreto vineyard, in the bright summer of 2015.
Extremely seductive wine, with fruity notes and spicy hints admirably fused in a harmonious whole, in perfect balance between power and sweetness, strength and fragrance.

Brunello di Montalcino

Vigna Loreto

The good thermal excursions of the year 2013, combined with the pebble and the tuff of Vigna Loreto, have allowed the local Sangiovese to express itself with personality and elegance. Always balanced between strength and refinement, this Brunello is defined by an intriguing succession of notes of fruit, sweet spices and tobacco, which find admirable synthesis in a large, rich and vigorous structure.

Brunello di Montalcino

Vigna Loreto

The land rich in pebble and tuff, that distinguishes Loreto vineyard, stares at the Sun rising and emphasizes the qualities of the autochthonous Sangiovese.
In 2012, summer was long and hot, but well balanced, and this allowed the ideal maturation of this great vineyard. The final result is a wine provided with a worthy elegance and personality, harmonious and characterized by the perfect harmony between its strength and its freshness, its force and its vivacity.

Brunello di Montalcino

Vigna Loreto

The youthful exuberance of the vines from the Loreto vineyard and fickle September 2008 weather gave us a Brunello that is  a paradigm of intensity and power, with a perfect ruby colour, wonderfully floral nose and the robust tannins of tuffaceous soil.

Vigna Loreto

The Loreto is a new single vineyard of one hectare and a half steep and rich of tuff cobblestone. The 2007 harvest gave us a Brunello with extraordinary notes of freshness and powerful, soft and silky tannins. The Loreto vine is the demonstration of how the extraordinary soil of Castelnuovo dell’Abate is also capable of finesse and unique elegance.
