San Lorenzo

One quickly realizes that the Montalcino Panorama consists primariy of small winemakers. Luciano Ciolfi’s Podere Sanlorenzo clearly falls into this category, as it boasts fewer than 5 hectares and a total production of 15-18,000 bottles…14 years have passed since Luciano took over the family property; with agronomic assistance from Massimo Achilli and winemaking assistance from Claudio Gori, he worked very hard remodel the vineyards to obtain maximum quality, and in the space of a few vintages was able to produce a Rosso and a Brunello of tremendous character. KYLE PHILLIPS
