The vines for this cru or single-vineyard Brunello are more than 45 years old. Low yields and strict viticultural practices allow the Sangiovese Grosso grape to reach perfect ripeness, and Tenute Silvio Nardi carefully selects the finest grapes during a manual harvest in the first half of October. After a complete destemming, the must undergoes fermentation and maceration at a controlled temperature. The wine then matures in French Allier oak barriques, followed by large Slavonian oak barrels, with subsequent aging in bottles.
Wine maker notes
Of the two Nardi estates within the commune of Montalcino, the Manachiara estate is the more recent and the smaller. Purchased in 1962, it lies in the southeast corner of Montalcino near Castelnuovo dell'Abate and covers 505 acres. The "podere" of Pinzale, Stercolati and Colombaio, as well as the vineyard of Manachiara proper, lie within this estate. The estate vineyards cover 95 acres and are situated at an altitude ranging from 919 to 1,279 feet at varying exposures. Most of these vineyard parcels contribute to the production of Nardi's classic Brunello di Montalcino or Rosso di Montalcino.

The vines of the Manachiara vineyard, the oldest of the estate, are thought to be rougly 45 years of age and occupy an extraordinary, seventeen-acre microclimate named "sunny morning," exposed to the southeast and suggesting its illumination from early morning through late afternoon. Whereas the dominant soil profile of the estate is sand with Pliocene clay content, the Manachiara vineyard also shows a quartz and calcium content and particularly good drainage which, with the advanced age of its vines, set it apart from the other vineyard parcels.

Following a manual harvest, fermentation is initiated in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 29-32° C (84-90° F), with skin contact lasting from eighteen to twenty-two days. The cap of skins is regularly submerged via various methods. According to the vintage characteristics, the wine is aged in primarily new French Allier barriques for 24 months followed by bottle fining.

Food pairing
Pair with roasted lamb and aged cheeses.

When Silvio Nardi purchased the Casale del Bosco estate in 1950, Montalcino was a little, rural village, the powerful Consorzio del Vino Brunello wasn’t yet an idea, and Nardi was the first ”foreigner” to invest in Montalcino (he was from Umbria). Today, Montalcino is a renowned wine community with many international investors, and the 36 vineyard plots of Tenute Silvio Nardi extend east and west of the town on three separate estates. Since 1990, Silvio Nardi’s youngest daughter, Emilia Nardi, has focused on vineyard development and produced wines of depth that are profound expressions of the land they come from.
