Rosso di Montalcino Deimassi 2020

The name Deimassi comes from the large stone blocks that make up the terrace wall supporting the vineyard. These emerged from the ground during the preparation work for the planting, carried out in 2008. The large stones together with friable clay connote this small plot initially intended for the production of Brunello di Montalcino.

The 2020 vintage

The 2020 harvest at Castiglion del Bosco was characterized by a dry winter, with below-average rainfall, but we recovered widely in May, which was quite cool and rainy. This helped the plants in their first vegetative phase. This year’s harvest is distinguished by a particularly hot and dry.

The first precipitation arrived at the end of August, which was essential to start evaluating and observing the ripening of the grapes. From this moment, however, the temperatures did not drop and there was not enough thermal excursion between day and night to hold back the ripening process.
