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.
This Rosso comes from the youngest vineyard on the property. The aging begins in steel, then goes into barrels of various sizes for one year. Before release, it ages in bottle for three months. Contrary to the Brunello, the Rosso is fresh, fruit, and better to drink right away.
