Falconaio Mate Albatro (Merlot / Sangioves)
The Máté family wine estate nestles on two private hills in the temperate, seaward zone of Montalcino. A Roman vineyard 2,000 years ago, the seven campi of marvelously varied terroir lie between 300 and 400 meters above sea level. Totaling 7 hectares (15 acres) among Mediterranean woods of herbs and wild fruit, they were designed by Fabrizio Moltard, agron-omist to Angelo Gaja. The clones, chosen for each field by France’s Pierre Guillaume, com-prise: Sangiovese (in fossil-filled tufo), Merlot (in sandy clay), Cabernet Sauvignon (in marl), and Syrah (on mineral-rich, southern terraces).
