Brunello di Montalcino 2015

Brunello di Montalcino 2015

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.

Il Brunello di Montalcino 2015 is intense and elegant. Traditionally vinified. After two weeks of natural spontaneous fermentation, the wine is racked into large French oak barrels where it ages for 38 months. Refined in bottle for 6 months minimum. Ruby red with garnet highlights. Opulent and intense on the nose, with nuances of ripe red fruit and intriguing herbal notes. Well-balanced on the palate with a lively acidity that lends vitality and freshness to a very elegant and complex wine. A hint of black pepper accompanies the finish. The softest of tannins are a hallmark of the body of this fine wine.

Perfect when paired with cheeses, meat and game; excellent with pasta and cold cuts.
