Thanks to its position, to the nature with its colours and the tranquillity that you can breathe, VERBENA is the ideal place to appreciate the little pleasures in life and get away from the stress of day-to-day life. You can walk around the family farm to have a closer look at country life; it will be possible to see our vineyards and olive groves and appreciate the loving and painstaking care paid to them – the only way in which to give life to products that are now known and appreciated the world over like Brunello di Montalcino, Rosso di Montalcino DOC, Tuscan Vin Santo and extra virgin olive oil.
Two parts: Montalcino vineyards surrounding the farm with northeast exposure where climate is coolest, and the other half in Castelnuovo dell'Abate with southeast exposure and warmer climate. Both areas on hilly, medium altitude.
It’s origins begin with the Sangiovese Grosso, a robust and generous grape type. It’sattributes are expressed in time: a period of aging in oak vats and a lengthy period of fining in the bottle. Brunello di Montalcino has a distinctive intense ruby red colour, tending to garnet with age, with notable scents of rich fruit and spices; on the palate the taste is uniquely characteristic of Montalcino. A superb wine to accompany roasted red meats - it is suggested that the bottle, depending on the vintage, be opened several hours before serving.
