||Castelnuovo Berardenga, northeast of Siena
||Altitude: 320-420 m. a.s.l. Exposure: South-West.
|Composition of the land
||Geologically, the terrains are mixed: in the higher parts the soil is predominantly rock quartz and calcareous alberese mixed with alluvial pebbles; strataform sandstone and loam characterize the vineyards on the edge of the Colli Senesi in the direction of the Crete Senesi.
||Bilateral cordon training system and simple Guyot with a maximum of 5-8 buds per vine.
||Staggered due to different altitudes of the vineyards, within the first three weeks of October.
||After the quality-selected clusters are de-stemmed and pressed, the must is fermented and macerated in stainless steel for 14-16 days at 28 °C and 30 °C, with programmed punchdowns and daily pumpovers.
||In March-April, the new wine goes into medium-size Slavonian oak barrels, and into twice and thrice used French oak barrels; after 12-16 months of maturation, the final blend is assembled, bottled, and ages in glass a minimum of 3-6 months.
