The vineyards of the Fornacina winery in Montalcino
The surface of the vines are 5 Ha, where 3 Ha are situated around the winery at an altitude of 400 meters a.s.l. on the south, south – east side of the hills of Montalcino.
The other 2 Ha are on the south side of Montalcino, in Castelnuovo dell’ Abate.
The ground structure goes from an alkaline PH medium mixture to galestro. The production system density is about 4,500 plants per hectar, and we use the “rammed cord” raising system.
Continuous presence in the vineyards, careful selection of the grapes before and during the harvest, the characters of the grapes coming from two different hillsides, these are our ingredients for a production of unquestioned excellent wines.
We only market what we obtain from our own vineyards with a medium production of between 20.000 – 25.000 bottles a year, subdivided from Brunello di Montalcino DOCG, Brunello di Montalcino DOCG Riserva (only in the excellent years), and Rosso di Montalcino DOC.
The marc obtained after the fermentation, are made into our Grappa di Brunello.
Brunello di Montalcino, Rosso di Montalcino and Grappa di Brunello are our traditional products. We grow our grapes following the organic farming method to preserve our profound tie to the territory.g
