Montalcino is located about 40 km south of the city of Siena, in a beautiful hilly area. An uncontaminated agricultural landscape of great history and beauty that, since 2004, is registered on the UNESCO World Heritage list.
This land is characterized by mild climate during the entire vegetative phase of the vine and a high number of sunny days, ensuring the grapes reach a gradual and complete ripening.
The Sangiovese grapes, used to produce Brunello, grow in two different areas of Montalcino, both rich in galestro: a draining and flaky soil. In these draining soils, the plants will not suffer from water stagnation in the rainy years. Additionally, in the dry years, the roots are encouraged to penetrate deeply into the soil finding water and nutrients.
