Happiness is a full cellar. I'm grinning ear to ear because our ideal location on the southwest slopes of Montalcino has allowed 80% of our Sangiovese grapes (for Brunello di Montalcino) to make it into the cellar - perfectly ripe and mature by Friday, Oct 4th afternoon. Just in time to beat the torrential rains of Saturday.

Amazing color; perfumes to die for; tannins, acidity and PH perfect. Many say it's the best Brunello vintage in the last 30 years.

The remaining 20%? Something for the birds in winter.

Thank you Patron Saint of Vintners, whoever you are!
