Helichrysum 2014
Brunello di Montalcino DOCG

17 points Jancis Robinson: "Lustrous ruby. Savoury and deep red-fruit nose. Supple, gentle strawberry fruit with lots of coating tannins and completely intergrated acidity. Closes up on the finish, but there is more to come."

Grape
Sangiovese

Vineyard altitude
450 m

Terroir
South facing vineyard at 450 metres. Sandy loam and volcanic soil mix, with marl veins.

Weather
A mild and rather wet winter was followed by an early, though slightly cool, spring. The summer was characterized by unusually high rainfalls and low temperatures, which delayed the ripening process. Late summer, however, saw an increase in temperatures, and San Polino avoided the last summer rains. Luck with the weather and rigorous selections of the grapes meant that we brought in an unexpectedly good harvest, even in this difficult year.

Maceration
3 days at 12°C pre-fermentation, 30 days post-fermentation
