La Winery

The winery is situated at about 500 metres from the centre of Montalcino and has splendid views over the old town, the val d’Arbia, and the surrounding woods. Here all the vinification, ageing and bottling processes take place.

 

The vinification cellar is a well insulated modern building situated underground and hidden by a natural terrace. Vinification takes place in stainless steel containers of 60 Hl. The cellar used for the ageing process is built of natural stone walls and is air conditioned.

The ageing in wood takes place in oak barrels with an average capacity of about 30 Hl. When the ageing process is complete the wine is bottled and left to rest in glass for a further six months in a stockroom with a constant temperature of 15°C.
