The Beatesca vineyard is located on the hill of Montalcino. By virtue of the vineyards’ great positioning and exposure, Beatesca wines represent one of the most noble and elegant aromas of the Sangiovese grape.
The soils have a clay-loam texture and are rich in mineral salts (studied and analyzed by Professor Mario Pasini of the Department of Geology and Paleontology at the University of Siena).
The vineyards are arranged with terracing and spurred cordon is the method used for growing grapes with a high plant density.
The unit production is approximately equal to 1 kg/plant. The vinification takes place in line with the traditional protocols following the disciplinary of the Brunello di Montalcino Consortium. Refinement takes place in 5 HL French oak Tonneaux and the bottling is not preceded by any filtration, in order to maintain the authentic structure and expression of the wine.
By virtue of its latitude, exposure, and production standards, Beatesca wines represent one of the most elegant expressions of Brunello and Rosso di Montalcino. The solid vertical plant system guaranteeing good acidity and a high concentration of mineral salts.
Benedetta and Furio the owners, since 1991 have worked with curiosity, dedications and great passion to rebuild the small vineyard that had always existed but had risked disappearing. They have dedicated themselves to maintaining the balance while respecting the integrity in collaboration with agronomist Oriano Scheggi and oenologist Roberto Cipresso.
The Company’s name “Beatesca” can be found on both company labels. The name is a dedication to their daughters Beatrice and Francesca and to the ancient place where this magical wine comes from.
