Beautiful colour deep ruby red. Intense, rich of tertiary aromas but at the same time contained and well preserved, with evident spicy notes of tobacco, pepper corn, balsamic hints, intertwined with primary wild cherries. The mouthfeel is warm, full with well-rounded tannins. The wine has a surprisingly long finish, ideal for the most special moment. A meditation wine.
Only the best vintages from the oldest vineyards, over 50 years old, with a very low yield per hectar are elected to be Duca di Montalbo. The plot of land, or Cru, is crucial: the soil in the area called Montalbo is characterized by a 100% calcareous marl, a lunar landscape, extremely suited for the long ripening of the red varieties.
