Founded in 1923, the estate now covers 100 hectares and its wines have reached international recognition for their purity of expression, strong backbone of acidity and polished tannins. These are simply one the finest wines of Brunello. Employing very low yields, hand-picking their grapes, and using casks as well as barriques in vinification, they make fabulous wines that are often accessible earlier than some of their Brunello counterparts.
WS:95 Wine Spectator: 95 "Very fresh aromas of pressed flowers with hints of plums and raspberries. Full-bodied, with super well-knit tannins and a long, long finish of ripe fruit and beautiful character. I love this. This is better than 1997. Get it fast.” (May 2004)
