All the fruit was harvested exclusively from our home Vineyard, Poggio alla Pietra in what is now known as Moon Mountain District, Sonoma County. Sangiovese is best suited to steep and arid sites just like the volcanic red and rocky soil on the south facing slopes of Petroni Vineyards. Hand farmed according to organic principles, the vines are carefully maintained and the crop reduced to ensure ripe and concentrated wines are produced from this outstanding site.
Made in the style of Brunello, each block is picked at the right moment to harness the balance of acidity and ripe flavors. Destemmed and crushed to purpose built tanks, the must is fermented and remains on skins for an extended maceration of up to 40 days. The pressed wine is matured in a combination of French oak barriques and puncheons of which 20% are new each vintage.
