IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS

The name “Ugolforte” comes from a well-known bandit which during the XII century has lead the rebellion of Montalcino’s people against the power of Siena.

This wine is produced from averagely 15-20 years old vineyards, placed between 250 400 meters above sea level. The soil is rich with skeleton; there is also a major presence of clay with big portion of tufaceus outcrops. The climate is mild and Mediterranean with nearly constant winds. A viticulture totally based on respectful methods and principles toward the environment allows a spontaneous productive balance of about 4 tons per hectare of grapes, completely harvest by hand and carefully selected.

The fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks with gentle and repeated pumping over, allowing long maceration and slow release of the only noble and fully ripe tannins. The ageing is carried on in brand new small French barrels (30% of time) and secondly in used small French barrels (70% of the time), where the wine will age for 12 months. The ageing keeps going in 30 and 50 Hl Slavonian oak casks for additional 24 months. The bottle refinement is at least 12 months of period.

Well paired with venison and game, fits perfectly with the local preparations of wild boar, moist braised red meat, excellent with hard cheese of medium seasoning.
