We are north of Montalcino: in the 6 hectares of vineyards located south / south-west of the Montòsoli hill and at an altitude of 280 meters above sea level, the Rosso di Montalcino of the Baricci family is produced. In the vineyard the use of any chemical substance is not foreseen and the vegetative balance of the plants is preserved to the maximum, without any forcing. The Sangiovese grapes, harvested by hand, ferment for 20 days in stainless steel (using only indigenous yeasts) and rise in 20 and 40 hectolitre Slavonian oak barrels for a year.
The 2020 winter season began with a generally dry climate during the months of January and February. From the budding, which took place in the last days of March, until the end of July, the climate was regular, with sunny days and sporadic rainy events that guaranteed the correct restoration of the water reserves in the soil. Summer, in particular the month of August, was characterized by a rise in temperatures, but without particular heat peaks; the excellent temperature variations between day and night made it possible to give the right refreshment to the vines and to start the grape ripening process in the best possible way.
Brilliant ruby red color, the nose is intense with hints of small fresh fruits and light black cherry. In the mouth it is harmoniously dry, has strength and freshness with an elegant aromatic persistence.
Wine with very good evolutionary prospects.
