The Wine

The Vineyards

Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Cesanese di Affile grape varieties are cultivated in high-density vineyards (around 10,000 vines per hectare) on a south-facing hillside.
There is also a vineyard on the western side of the estate which is cultivated according to traditional methods and dedicated to the growing of Sangiovese grapes.

The Wine

Brusone wine is of a dark, ruby-red colour with an intense bouquet of red and black fruits. It originates from various grape varieties which are vinified separately and then skilfully and carefully blended. In accordance with the farm’s philosophy of favouring quality over quantity, a strict and precise ‘green harvest’ is carried out in early August, leaving only a few bunches per vine to concentrate the aromas and sugars. The autumn grape harvest is then carried out strictly by hand. The wine is produced in the estate’s cellars. After vinification in stainless steel vats and ageing in oak barrels, the Brusone matures in the bottle for a year before becoming commercially available. The entire production is just 8,000 bottles per year.
