The production area coincides with the communal territory of Montalcino. Distributed over that territory, according to the best viticultural tradition of the environment and marvelously inserted into the landscape, the Brunello estates offer numerous opportunities to visitors interested in wine as well as natural beauty.
The climate is typically Mediterranean with precipitation concentrated in the months of May, October and November (700 millimeters annually on the average). In winter, snow is not rare above an altitude of 400 meters.
The strip of the hill of moderate altitude, where the greater part of the winemaking estates is situated, is not affected by fog, ice or late frost as are the surrounding valleys, while the normal, persistent winds ensure the best conditions for the health of the plants. The fundamentally mild climate and a large number of days of serene weather during the entire vegetative cycle assure the gradual and complete ripening of the grape clusters.
The main variety used is San Giovese Grosso, a clonal section of Sangiovese, a grape used in all red Tuscan wines.
