100% Sangiovese. Ageing for 12/14 months in barrels.
Sotirio is made from pure Sangiovese grape following the best tradition of production in the territory of Siena. It has ruby red color and the nose gives notes of ripe cherry and sweet tobacco. The palate is elegant and intense with silky tannins and spicy final notes.
Owned by Giovani Bulgari, the vineyards are located at Palazzone at San Casciano dei Bagni, the most Southern tip of Tuscany, where hills, streams and wind create an outrageous natural climate to produce unique wines. Only in these authentic places, where the summers are still hot and the winters freezing, and with mild springs and autumns and little snow, it is possible to have the ideal conditions for the vines to ripe at its best. The soil – which is composed by clay, limestone, sandstones and fossils – and has a sunny South-Eastern exposure of the vineyard make, combined with the altitude, give well-structured elegant wines.
