Notes from the Winemaker:

The San Giorgio estate vineyards are essentially a continuation of the coveted Poggio di Sotto site in Castelnuovo dell'Abate. As such, the Sangiovese Grosso cultivated here benefits from the same climatic conditions, soils, and exposures as its world-renowned sibling. As part of the Collemassari Group of estates, San Giorgio's vines are now managed and vinified by the same world-class winemaking team of Tuscan icons, Poggio di Sotto and Grattamacco. 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 the estate's most mature vines (20 years old on average), situated between 250 and 400 meters above sea level. The soil is rich with calcareous deposits and clay. The climate is mild and Mediterranean with nearly constant winds, creating an ideal environment for minimally invasive viticulture.
The fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks with gentle and repeated pumping over, allowing a long maceration and slow release of noble and fully ripe tannins. Aging is carried out in 30hl oak casks over a period of 24 months.

Tasting Notes:
San Giorgio Ugolforte presents a dark core of red and black berry fruit layered with earth, leather, smoke, and herbs. Complex and elegant, the wine is full on the palate and firm in tannin structure. Refreshing acidity frames a graceful finish. Classic Brunello di Montalcino.

Food Pairing:
Traditionally paired with game and hardy, autumnal fare, Brunello di Montalcino is one of the world's great red wines. Enjoy with a celebratory meal or contemplate alone as a true "Vino da Meditazione"
