Solaria Brunello Di Montalcino 123 2001
Solaria is an artisan winery located on a natural plateau on the southeast side of Montalcino run by the extremely passionate and driven Patrizia Cencioni. Patrizia Cencioni does not spend her time behind a desk; instead she sits enthusiastically behind the wheel of her tractor, painstakingly tends to her vines by hand and takes on wholeheartedly the tasks of the cellar and every other step involved in the production of her wines.
Inheriting the estate formerly called Cencioni e Pallari in 1989, Patrizia employed tremendous entrepreneurial skill to create Solaria. Producing just four wines—Rosso di Montalcino, Brunello di Montalcino, the single vineyard Brunello di Montalcino 123 and the IGT Solarianne—Patrizia focuses all her attention on quality. The resulting wines speak for themselves and for this special place.
