Tenuta Corte Pavone: Biodynamic Winery
Tuscany is one of Italy’s oldest and most prestigious wine-growing areas and like most Mediterranean region it is characterised by wine, olive oil and corn.
The Tuscan countryside has a stimulating effect on people and has brought forth an enormous abundance of artists, scientists and winegrowers.
It also attracted Rainer and Hayo Loacker.
The Loacker estate Corte Pavone extends across the Montalcino hillsides at around 500 meters altitude amid a delightful landscape consisting of vineyards, fields and thick Mediterranean scrub.
The finest sites and soils are planted with carefully selected clones of Sangiovese for the production of Brunello.
Aromatic plants and herbs such as rosemary, lavender and thyme grow among the vines in the Corte Pavone estate and these and many more characterise the aromas and flavors of the complex and deep Brunello di Montalcino which comes from these vineyards.
The crushed grapes are left to ferment slowly with temperature control and the wine is matured for four to five years in oak casks of differing sizes and origins.
Finally the wine is matured in bottle for six months prior to release.
The wine estate ‘Corte Pavone’ was owned by the Martini family from Montalcino from around 1940 to 1988 and was subsequently managed by the Swiss company ‘Terre Bindella’.
The Rainer Loacker family acquired it in 1996 and since then it has been run according to Loacker principles with the motto ‘Philosophy with heart and soul.
