Tasting Notes

Luscious dark crimson Brunello with bountiful and intense aromas of red fruit, blackberry, spice, leather and cedar that lingers. The wine is clean, sharp but bold and generous at the same time. There is a touch of bitter almond, followed by softer tones of red berry and spice on the palate, with a long, lingering finish.

Winemaker Notes

The grapes for this wine come from the heart of Montalcino, from a single vineyard of family- owned vines situated both on a hill on the north side of the city (near the Montosoli Zone) as well as a vineyard on the southeast side. The soil on the north side is on the southeast side of the city. The soil on the north side is sandy and rocky with excellent exposure to the sun, while the soil to the south is clay with sandy soil and good drainage. The vineyard trellis system is spurred cordon, with the winemaking following the tradition for making superior Brunello. After careful selection of the hand-picked grapes, fermentation takes place with maceration for 25 days, some of the wine in stainless steel and the rest in Slavonian oak vats. The wine them spends 36 months in large Slavonian oak casks.

Pairings

This wine is a perfect accompaniment for red meats and various Italian cheeses.
