The area of vineyards has been developed in the amphitheatre of the south facing hills of Castelnuovo dell'Abate, at 350-430m asl, a part of which are to be found quite near the wonderful Roman Basilica of Sant'Antimo, and the rest in the hill side slopes from Castelnuovo dell'Abate toward Orcia. The soil is limy with stratified formation of "galestro" (marls).

Plenty of plum jam aromas and flavors with lots of citrus fruit and chocolate character. Full body, soft and fresh. I like the juicy finish. Best to drink after 2014. James Suckling. A Sangiovese Grosso wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2006 Fanti (Tenuta San Filippo) Brunello di Montalcino 1500ml
