The estate is situated in Montalcino and is run by Austrian, Caroline Pobitzer and German, Jan Hendrick Erbach. There are 6 hectares in total and the estate is one of the stars of the region. Everything is carried out strictly according to biodynamic principles and Sangiovese Grosso is the main grape grown alongside 2 tiny plots of Cabernet and Merlot which go into the estate's Super-Tuscan, 'Piandorino'. Yields are incredibly low (only 4 bunches per vine) and only naturally occurring yeasts found in the air are used. This superb Brunello is fermented in barrique for 5-6 weeks and then aged in cask for 3 years before bottling. It is one of the finest examples of Brunello to be found in Montalcino.

A bright cherry-red in colour. Captivating aromas of red cherry, violet, liquorice and tobacco. Lush and sweet on the palate with pronounced red berry flavours and a creamy texture. Notes also of mocha and smoke. The tannins are smooth and ripe. A supple and fleshy wine leading to a lingering, juicy finish. Try with bistecca alla fiorentina (Tuscan-style steak), wild boar sausages or a chunk of aged Pecorino cheese.
