Sangiovese at its purest. It is produced exclusively in the best years. After ageing for 40 months in 30 hl Slavonian oak barrels it obtains its delicacy and roundness and develops its austere and imposing aroma. It completes its evolution in the bottle for at least six months. It offers a fine and expansive fragrance of red fruit and is strong and dense on the palate with long, balanced and elegant taste embellished by a great tannin structure. Colour ruby red with garnet red reflections. Scent intense, excellent, broad bouquet, spicy (liquorice, tobacco, black pepper, chocolate) and long lasting with hints of brushwood, red berries and soft humus and mushroom. Taste dry, warm, soft with velvety tannins, balanced, very intense and very persistent.
Riserva Brunello pairs superbly with Italian and International cuisine; tipical tuscan dishes, roasts, game, mushrooms, red meats and seasoned sheep’s cheese.
