Set between Arna hill and the Orcia River to the south-east which helps moderate the temperature of this hot dry part of the region, it offers a unique panorama with the beautiful Mount Amiata in the background. 53 hectares are devoted to the wonderful Sangiovese Grosso grape which produce the Brunello di Montalcino together with small amounts of Merlot & Cabernet Sauvignon.
