Rosso di Montalcino, Voliero [Cortonesi]
In 2006 Andrea started a new project, together with other producers of the area friends of his, with the aim of enhancing the different aspects of the extraordinary terroir of Montalcino, and a Rosso and a Brunello are bottled under the brand-name of “Voliero.”
Their Rosso is 100% Sangiovese from 15-25 year old vines grown in clay soils. Cold maceration with the skins at 10-12 degrees Celsius (the number of days depends on the characteristics of the grapes). Fermentation in steel with temperature control for 18/20 days. The wine matures in large Slavonian and French oak casks (20/50 hectolitres) for 10 months.
