The terroir

 

The land of silence.

 

The property Sanlorenzo lies on the south west side of the municipality of Montalcino, at 500m. on the crest of the hills that stretch softly towards the river Ombrone. The land extends on both slopes of the hills : the woods with a northern exposure, towards the Arbia valley, the vineyards exposed south- west and the Maremma. The soil is rocky and Galestro and tends to be dry and poor. The special micro climate and the concentration of rainfall in spring and during late autumn, influence the growth of the Sangiovese and give the grapes an unique flavour. Some windy days the vineyards become the voice of Sanlorenzo, a choir that breaks the usual silence and for a few days seems to tell the stories of Sanlorenzo.
