Tommaso Cortonesi’s grandfather bought La Mannella in the 1970s. The estate spreads over 56 hectares, eight of which produce Brunello di Montalcino. The major vineyard is around the winery at La Mannella, just north of Montalcino itself, but there is another vineyard near Castelnuovo dell’ Abate, to the south east of the town.
The Rosso di Montalcino comes from vines planted in 2011 and is aged for one year in 30hl Slavonian oak botte. Annual production is between 12,000 and 14,000 bottles. A very pure and fragrant Rosso di Montalcino. Try with a ragu or a hearty stew.
