AGING POTENTIAL: 15-20 years Our most precious red wine. Only the best vintages from the oldest vineyards, over 50 years old, with a very low yield per hectar are elected to be Duca di Montalbo. The plot of land, or Cru, is crucial: the soil in the area called Montalbo is characterized by a 100% careous marl, a lunar landscape, extremely suited for the long ripening of the red varieties.
CULTIVATION ENVIRONMENT The picking of the grapes for the Duca di Montalbo coincides with the end of the harvest (second half or end of October), a delicate moment in which to evaluate whether the vintage has reached the quality standards necessary to make it a family Cru. The grapes cultivated in this plot of land in fact have a quite rich polyphenolic profile, difficult to mature, for this reason the fruit’s ripening is pushed on until the leaves begin to turn yellow, a sign that the vines are moving owards dormancy.
SENSORY PROFILE Beautiful colour deep ruby red. Intense, rich of tertiary aromas but at the same time contained and well preserved, with evident spicy notes of tobacco, pepper corn, balsamic hints, intertwined with primary wild cherries. The mouthfeel is warm, full with well-rounded tannins. The wine has a surprisingly long finish, ideal for the most special moment. A meditation wine.
