This estate has four hectares of vineyards, 2.5 of which are destined for Brunello and the rest for Rosso di Montalcino. The estate is situated in Tavernelle, to the north of Argiano and to the west of Pieve di Santa Restituta. It is in south-central Montalcino. Owned by Sergio Marchetti, whose family has been there since the 1700s, the wines are now made by his son-in-law, Adriano Bambagioni, with help from his son, Stefano. Adriano learned his trade during the 10 years he worked with Giacomo Tachis and this comes across in the supple tannins of the Brunello.
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.
