Salvioni Rosso di Montalcino 2018 - Tuscany
Bottle size: 750ml
Altitude of Vineyards: Our vineyard is divided into three lots of different ages ranging from the oldest at about 25 years old to the two most recent of 15 and 10 years of age. The vines are at an altitude of 420-440m above sea level and are to the south east of Montalcino in an area that is well ventilated with an excellent microclimate. The pebbly soil together with the altitude make the wine soft and well balanced in acidity.
The altitude, location and microclimate of the area where Rosso di Montalcino originates endow the wine with intense fragrances of forest floor with evident red fruits and ripe cherries as well as a hint of nose-palate elegance which comes from this perfect combination of factors. The ruby colour varies in its intensity from vintage to vintage depending on the ripening of the skins and the anthocyans set during the fermentation phase. Excellent served with cheese. Although there is a high demand for our Rosso di Montalcino, it is produced only when there is a greater yield of grapes during the harvest or if the grapes are not suitable to produce Brunello: for this reason Rosso di Montalcino is not featured yearly in our wine production.
Ours is a family property that has grown from the union of wine with hospitality. Umberto Salvioni, who had studied agriculture, chose to make wine so that he could offer it to his friends. His son Giulio decided to extend the range of friendship, creating a winery that could produce a limited number of bottles of absolute excellence. The first Cerbaiola Brunello was the fruit of the 1985 harvest, to be followed by other remarkable vintages that carried the name of Montalcino and the passion of the Salvionis far further afield. Following his degree in Agriculture, Giulio’s son David joined the family concern to help with vine husbandry and winemaking. More recently, his sister Alessia has completed the team, working alongside her father on marketing, sales and administration.
