Producer Information: Salvioni

Azienda Salvioni is situated in the north east of Montalcino and produces two Sangiovese-based wines – its flagship Brunello di Montalcino DOCG and a Rosso di Montalcino DOC wine.

Azienda Salvioni released its first Brunello di Montalcino wine in 1985 from grapes sourced at its La Cerbaiola vineyard. The 20-hectare vineyard is divided into three plots of Sangiovese
vines varying in age from 10-25 years old. The vines are planted at an altitude of between 420 to 440 meters above sea level, with each plot characterized by its own distinctive microclimate
and soil composition of chalk and marl. The estate's signature Brunello di Montalcino is only made in the best years; therefore the estate will use its entire Sangiovese crop for its Rosso di
Montalcino in lesser harvest years. Vinification takes place over approximately 30 days in stainless steel vats. The Brunello di Montalcino sees 36 months in Slavonian oak barrels, whereas the Rosso di Montalcino is aged for 12 months in barrel. Both wines are also aged in bottle.
