The farm buildings of Sesta di Sopra, purchased by the Spina family in 1980, date back to the 1200s. With vineyards located just south of Montalcino, the estate’s geographical location is hugely favourable to grape production. The Sangiovese Grosso clone vines are grown using the spur cordon system which generates a low production yield and high quality harvest. The family’s respect for the region’s traditional winemaking techniques combined with the modern agricultural techniques produces exceptionally structured and expressive wines. The Brunello’s rich velvety character complemented by ripe wild berries and spices, when young, has great potential to evolve into a beautifully intense, soft and smoky wine. It spends at least 24 months in Slovenian oak barrels whereas the Rosso Di Montalcino is aged for 3 months in French oak. Bursting with bright red fruit and toasty vanilla notes, the Rosso is noted for its elegant structure.
