The Brunello di Montalcino is one of Italy’s most important and prestigious wines. The grapes (100% Sangiovese Grosso) are grown within the hillsides of the township of Montalcino (Siena).
Vinification: medium-length steeping on the skins, with temperature-controlled fermentation.
The wine is aged for three years in big oak barrels, followed by a bottle finishing period of at least six months in temperature controlled cellars. The colour of the wine is intense ruby red, with pale pomegranate highlights. Its bouquet is decisive, fine, broad and lingering with hints of vanilla, cherry, raspberry, and licorice. The palate is dry, warm, smooth, well-textured and lingering on the palate.
