Brio is made from Sangiovese grapes grown in the estate vineyards on the gently sloping hills of Scansano, fully expressing the freshness of this grape variety. The combination of altitude, south-westerly exposure, and rich volcanic soils in Scansano create one of Italy’s most unique microclimates. Dense ruby red in colour with fragrant floral aromas, notes of red berries and cherries, and a layer of aromatic herbs. The medium bodied palate is refined and balanced, with well integrated savouriness and soft tannins carrying through to the long and fruity finish.
Castello Romitorio is situated in a wild part of Montalcino with a microclimate of less sunny slopes and cooler average temperatures than the rest of the region. The vineyards circle the Castle, on slopes which run parallel to the slopes of Montalcino.

2018 chateau saransot dupre, cru bourgeois superieur listrac
Chateau Saransot-Dupre is a favourably sited 17 hectares property that lies between Fourcas Dupré and Fourcas Hosten in Listrac. Due to Listrac’s cooler temperatures, Merlot and Cabernet Franc are favoured over Cabernet Sauvignon to form the majority of the blend, helping them achieve optimum ripeness. Much like Chateau Fourcas Hosten, the wines have improved year on year since 2010 and the property were put on the radar thanks to a certain Robert Parker hailing the 2010 vintage as 'classed growth quality'. High praise indeed!
