The year 2014 is characterized by a rainy summer and a September with not too cold temperatures at night, requiring an accurate selection of the grapes during the harvest in the second half of October.
Fermentation with careful removal of the seeds and draining, aimed at the extraction of color allowed us to obtain a high quality wine even in an extremely difficult year.
The subsequent aging for over 8 months in 25 Hl. oak barrels created a wine with the high quality as is our tradition.
A wine that contains all the classic features of the Rosso di Montalcino: freshness and flavor which we are sure will satisfy to the fullest the taste of our consumers making them appreciate our wines even more.
To be born between two fantastic 5 star vintages and be rewarded with "only" 4 is a great challenge but our Brunello 2011 has all the credentials to be highly appreciated and with its remarkable personality to satisfy even the more demanding palates.
A hot summer and a dry September enabled us to bring high qualitygrapes to our cellars. Careful vinification at a controlled temperature only intensified the meticulous work done in the vineyard, confirming our expectations of this vintage to the fullest.
The first tastings at Crocedimezzo have already confirmed its great potential and the 2011will be a vintage of Brunello di Montalcino for "experts."
The altitude of our vineyards, located 480 meters a.s.l. allows us to maintain the truly extraordinary fragrances which, along with an important structure, give this wine a remarkable ability for further bottle aging allowing you to enjoy the wine for a long period of time

The 2010 vintage will be remembered not only by experts bur by all those who love the world of wine, in fact the conclusion of the process of aging in the cellar has confirmed what we already expected: the Brunello di Montalcino Crocedimezzo 2010 vintage is truly a fantastic wine!
A “classic” summer meant a slow and steady ripening of the grapes and the results are widely appreciated on the palate. At first glance significant alcohol component anticipates the great structure and balance of this successful harvest , with which we are sure to continue the success of previous years.
Our Brunello Riserva is rare, as we choose to produce Riserva only in exceptional years, but 2010 will surely be one of those completing and worthily honoring this stunning vintage.
An great 4 star year, its rating not so much reflecting the quality of the wine but rather the fact that it followed two previous 5-star rated years.
A “typical” summer enabled the slow and constant maturation of the grapes. The results of this can be wholly appreciated on the palate.
The altitude of our vineyards, at 480 metres above sea level means that the extraordinary perfumes of our wines can be maintained. Immediate perfumes of freshness and goodness united with a great structure that give this wine the capacity to age and refine still more in the bottle and the potential to be enjoyed for many years to come
Characterised by soft yet pronounced tannins, the wine’s excellent structure enhances the specialised work of the winery, a work that has managed to encapsulate all the special perfumes from the vineyard and transfer them into the bottle.
Once again can present our devoted clientele with a product that is both traditional and profoundly connected to our territory.
