Robert Parker: Very fresh and informal approach
The Il Palazzone NV Rosso del Palazzone (with exactly 6,008 bottles made) is an equal blend of Sangiovese from the 2019 and the 2016 vintages. This estate has made this wine for over 15 years, and it represents a byproduct of the manner in which this estate blends its Brunello. The best lots go to the Brunello, and what's leftover is assembled to make this playful wine. This Rosso is redolent of bitter almond, fresh cherry and raspberry, revealing a very fresh and informal approach.

BOTTLE: 75 Cl. – ALC/ VOL. 13.5%

The vineyards at Il Palazzone are all planted with Sangiovese Grosso, the grape that is known in Montalcino as “Brunello.” Grapes in our Vino Rosso come from the same vines that produce our Brunello DOCG, and receive equal attention and benefit from several green harvests and selections in the vineyard. The grapes are picked by hand, usually at the beginning of October.

Our Brunello vineyards are in three very different areas of Montalcino. Consequently each vineyard ripens at a different time and the picked grapes show very different qualities due to difference in soil, age of vines, position and altitude. The ensuing wines are also vinified separately. We create an ideal composition for each vintage of Brunello by combining our three 100% Sangiovese vineyards in different proportions, depending on whether or not we produce a Riserva and the vagaries of the growing season.

Occasionally we choose not to include a barrel of wine from one vineyard or the other in order to maintain a perfect balance in our Brunello. This wine, potential Brunello, is set aside to make our VR, Rosso del Palazzone.

This versatile wine is an excellent wine “a tutto pasto” i.e. suited to all courses, in particular vegetable soups, cheese and first and second courses featuring red meat. It has a remarkable price:quality ratio.

Since it derives from several vintages, it has no vintage on the label. The clue to its composition is the lotto number which appears in the bottom right hand corner of the label. It is loved by many and chosen as a wine of the week by Jancis Robinson. The Vintages page contains tasting notes and more detail on each bottling.

Le Due Porte vineyardsResponsible Agriculture
We are currently practising what is known as “agricoltura responsabile.”



Marco and Massimo make decisionsPrecision viticulture
Every week our consultant agronomer visits the vineyard in order to assess the particular conditions at Il Palazzone. He analyses factors that influence grape yield and quality (soil, topography, microclimate, vine health, etc.) and helps us to make the appropriate choices in the vineyards. Our vineyards vary so much in terms of terroir that we benefit from an individual approach. This way of working ensures that we never do unnecessary treatments.


Le Due Porte vineyardsNo chemical pesticides
The few treatments that we make in the vineyard are base metals that are allowed by the EEC directive 2092/91 that governs organic farming. We do not use sophisticated chemical compounds that are damaging to the environment and the ecosystem.


Bart cuts back excess foliage: July 2009By hand at any cost
Whenever possible we effect manual operations rather than anti-fungal treatments. For example we will choose to strip away vine-leaves by hand in order to give the bunches as much air as possible after rain in order to avoid grey mould rather than spraying the vines with an anti-botrytis treatment.

Opting for manual work rather than tractor intervention is always more expensive. However, “il vino si fa in vigna” – wine is principally made in the vineyard, not the cellar – and these results of these choices are evident in the final quality of our wines.


VineyardCultivating biodiversity
We are trying to reacquire the balance that is lost through the use of chemicals by avoiding them as much as possible and trying to replenish the soil and the ecosystem. You will see flowers, butterflies, ladybirds and earthworms in our vineyard!


Cover cropsCover crops : green manure
We have opted for organic fertiliser in the vineyards. Rather than using chemical fertilizers which pollute streams and groundwater, we plant cover crops – nitrogen rich leguminous plants such as lupins and fava beans – in alternate rows. These are then ploughed into the earth, enriching and fertilising the soil. This has the many advantages: it reduces erosion, improves water absorption and increases soil organic matter which enhances soil structure. It can also lead to increased soil carbon sequestration which has been promoted as a mitigation strategy to help offset the rise in atmospheric carbon dioxide levels.


Locally sourced chestnut postsVineyard posts
We use locally grown chestnut posts that do not need to be treated with preservatives as supports in the vineyard.
