A blend of Pinot Noir and Sangiovese in different proportions. The Pinot Noir vineyard was planted in 1984 on high-limestone slopes of the San Lorenzo valley. The vines are from Burgundy clones 111, 114, and 115. The Sangiovese grapes are from different areas and vineyards, mostly from younger vineyards. The clusters were destemmed and gently pressed, and then each variety was separately fermented in stainless steel. The wine was racked off after 12 days and put immediately into barriques (2-3 years old). The separate lots of wine were blended together and then racked and returned to the barrels for 6 months of aging.
