Very nice explanation- thanks for clarifying this!


fabien :

Think you for your explanation.
For brunello di Montalcino wine do you mix the clones, I mean for a brunello red wine, you mix VCR 5 and VRC 6 or you choose just one clon? Which one is the most tipical of Montalcino?
I heard about VCR 103 what the difference between this one and the 2 others?
