A Brunello dedicated to the memory of the founder Cosimo Loia, who strongly believed in the potential of the vineyards in the this land of Montalcino. The grapes for this wine are harvested directly from the first vineyard planted by Cosimo himself in 1985 - Today we call that vineyard “Vigna Vecchia". Produced with a selection of grapes from the estate's highest and richest vineyard in marl, this is an intense ruby wine with sparkling garnet notes. It has a particularly seductive and complex nose: notes of woodland and undergrowth, medicinal herbs, but also of red roses, spices and small ripe red fruits. On the palate it is refined and elegant, then more powerful and concentrated, with perfect minerality, freshness and a never unpleasant acidity. A very long, persistent, memorable wine. For great occasions.A wine for meditation. For important, tasty, quality dishes, especially roasts and game.
