After years of continual experimentation, we identified the best potential for quality in the vineyards of "Asinone".The Nobile "Asinone" is the highest expression of our production and the most complete synthesis of tradition and oenological innovation. Produced from Sangiovese grapes, this wine has an unmistakable style and distinct character, but it is, nevertheless, capable of holding its own in relation to international tastes.

CLASSIFICATION: DOCG ? Vino Nobile di Montepulciano
FIRST YEAR OF PRODUCTION: 1983 (begun as a Reserve)
AVERAGE BOTTLE PRODUCTION: Asinone is only produced in the best years, and the number of bottles depends on the quality of the vintage. Average production is about 20,000 - 40,000 bottles. The years in which it is not bottled, Asinone is "downgraded" to basic Nobile di Montepluciano.
VARIETY: In the best years, Asinone is produced from 100% Sangiovese, otherwise we add about 10% Colorino and Merlot from the newer vineyards.

SOIL TYPE: Soft clay, slightly skeletal
PLANT DENSITY: 3,000 per hectare in the old part, 5,000 in the new.

VINIFICATION: Fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature, with milling that includes repassing the must over the grape dregs. Fermentation and maceration take 20 - 25 days.
REFINEMENT: 16 - 18 months in "barriques" of French oak.
AGEING POTENTIAL: 15 years
