We made this Brunello di Montalcino from our vineyards located in the southwest of Montalcino at an altitude of 300-350 meters above sea level facing the sea and the Maremma. This is Montalcino’s hottest area. Here the soil consists of sandstone and rocky marl, which allows the production of well-structured, mineral wines.
Brunello di Montalcino 2012 is intense and elegant. Traditionally vinified. After two weeks of natural, spontaneous fermentation in stainless steel tanks, the wine is transferred into 54 Hl untoasted French oak casks, where it ages for 38 months. Minimum bottle ageing 7 months. The nose is rich, intense with ripe red fruits aromas enhanced by black pepper and cloves notes. In the mouth is robust and well balanced in the mouth with superb acidity that yields vibrancy and freshness to a really elegant and complex wine. Aromas of red fruits marmalade and a hint of spices licorice complete the experience offered by this Brunello. Soft and elegant tannins characterize the perfect body. Superb with aged cheese and game meat.
