Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2017
Pure Sangiovese from a selection of the best grapes of our vineyards, matured in 30 hl Slavonian oak barrels for 30 months with subsequent ageing of four months in the bottle. Uniting traditional and modern technology, Brunello has always been a great wine, certainly important and a pleasure to drink. When it is young, it is rich in scents of fruit and flowers. When it has aged, it acquires complex ethereal characteristics and offers a broad bouquet with an aroma of autumn leaves. Colour ruby red towards garnet with ageing. Scent intense, broad bouquet, elegant, rich in scents of mellow red fruits, spicy in notes of licorice and tobacco. taste dry, warm, soft with velvet tannins, balanced, very intense, very persistent and elegant.
Brunello pairs superbly with italian and International cuisine; typical Tuscan dishes, roasts, game, red meats and seasoned sheep’s cheese.
“A tight, refined red with plum, berry, cherry and some cedar and lemon peel. It’s medium-to full-bodied with fine, tight tannins and a fresh finish. Pretty, ripe fruit at the end”
