In 2006, the Mátés received immediate high praise and accolades with their first wines from the 2002 vintage. No surprise at all, considering the care the husband and wife put into their vines. They learned from the best including the late “Prince of Oenology” Carlo Corino. They also worked with famed, flying winemaking consultant Roberto Cipresso (Achaval Ferrer, Case Basse, Ciacci Piccolomini, Bisol, et.al.) Oriano Scheggi, who has worked with Angelo Gaja for 15 years, currently advises Candace and her son Peter. A true family affair, Ferenc oversees the vineyards, grape-growing and harvest.They hand planted the perfect Sangiovese clones taking advantage of the varied exposition, elevation and soil composition of their land on the seaward slopes of Montalcino. Their Brunello has beautiful fresh aromas and flavors, drinkable now but able to spend time in the cellar, too. Absolutely delicious!
About the wine
The owners, Candace and Ferenc Máté moved from New York to Tuscany in 1987 to write and paint. Their adventures have been documented by Ferenc in three books which have sold, world- wide, over a million copies in 14 languages: The Hills of Tuscany - relates their move from New York, A Vineyard in Tuscany - a humorous and informative book about the restoration of their home in Montalcino, the planting of their vineyards, and the making of their first wines; and The Wisdom of Tuscany. Only perfectly mature, carefully selected grapes entered the cellar. Fermented with indigenous yeasts in 36 HL temperature-controlled stainless steel and wood vats, the must was punched down by hand to extract colors and tannins, while being kept cool to maintain the rich aromas of fruits and spices. Given the pedigree, this wine is a steal and compares to wines at twice the price!

"Very pretty aromas with black cherry and blueberry character. Full body, layered and beautiful with medium velvety tannins and a flavorful finish. Shows class. Better than 2012. Drink or hold."
