San Lorenzo is a historic property, at least in the world of Montalcino producers. The name comes from Lorenzo Ferretti who originally purchased the land of the estate during the late 19th century. Generation after generation, the property operated as a farm that raised livestock and made wine for home consumption only. The family continued to plant more vines and sold the fruit to other wineries. It wasn’t until the great surge of interest in Brunello around 1997 that the family, namely Luciano, began to bottle their own Sangiovese. They bottled their first wine in 2003 and haven’t looked back since.
The fruit for this Brunello comes from the best fruit of San Lorenzo. It is aged in steel, then barrels for three years, and finally for four months in bottle before release. The wine is showing very well, and will only continue to improve upon aging further.
