Such is the quality of the vineyards in this small estate that Adriano Bambagioni has been able to produce wines that have won numerous accolades. Adriano learned his trade during the 10 years that he worked together with Giacomo Tachis at Argiano, where he is the cellar master. This experience is evident in the supple tannins of the Brunello, as well as the excellent structure of the Rosso. His winemaking blends tradition with a modern approach, with both used French oak barriques and large Slovenian oak casks being used for the Brunello. The estate has been owned by the Marchetti family, Adriano's in-laws, since 1700, and Adriano's son, Stefano, now works alongside him. The estate is situated in south central Montalcino and covers four hectares of vineyards, 2.5 of which are destined for Brunello. The vines are on average 18 years old.
Winemaker: Adriano Bambagioni
This wine is intense ruby red in colour, with aromas of ripe and dried red berry fruits and blood orange. It shows wonderful complexity on the palate, with a core of fruit and spicy notes. The tannins are noteworthy, silky and persistent. This is a wine with great balance, elegance and complexity which will continue to develop its flavours in the bottle.
Dark ruby red in colour. Impeccable fresh, fruity aromas are given depth by delicate tertiary notes, exemplary structure and roundness. The long, persistent finish is lifted and bright.
