Rosso di Montalcino 2004

 

 

The vintage of 2004 was distinguished by its balanced climate. The persistent spring rains were followed by summer days that were hot and sunny but interspersed with days that were cool and rainy, while September was generally dry, hot during the day and cool at night. This trend favoured fine development of the grapes and ripening that evolved in the right way up to the optimum moment for harvest. It was an excellent year for the Sanlorenzo vineyards. The harvest took place on 18 and 19 October.
The red wine Rosso di Montalcino Doc Sanlorenzo comes from the youngest vineyard on the farm, which opens like an amphitheatre towards the Orcia River valley and the sea. The land is generally clayey and rocky, and the special microclimate at over 400 meters above sea level gives the Sangiovese Grosso cultivated in these vineyards an especially delicate flavour. Vinified in steel vats at controlled temperatures, this wine is then aged for 12 months in wooden barrels of various sizes to reach an optimum equilibrium. Sixteen months of work in the cantina is completed with a final aging of at least 3 months in the bottle, to bring to the glass a wine that is very fruity and
delicate, but which has considerable body. The fresh aromas of ripe cherries and the pleasant underlying traces of wood make it balanced and elegant to the taste, and give it a distinguished flavour.
