Winemaker's Notes

100% Sangiovese in Montalcino denominated Brunello

The Brunello di Montalcino Cerretalto is produced from a selection of vineyards situated in the natural amphitheatre by the Asso river. The particular microclimate, the "terroir", the low production per vine and the great attention to detail in the winery together produce a well balanced wine with character and good alcohol content. It is only produced when we consider the quality of the grapes harvested to be excellent. It is aged for about 2 years in small oak casks and then for at least 36 months in the bottle.

I've held this in my chiller for over 2 years and was not disappointed in such patient resolve! An intriguing nose of deep red fruit, chocolate, and an aromatic tobacco. Engaging balance of fruit and tannins, with a long, inviting finish! I've one bottle left, I wonder how it will develop with another year or two?

Sangiovese (SAHN-gee-oh-VAY-zee) Blood of Jove (literally translated) The principal grape of Chianti - in fact, the principle grape of all of Tuscany - has had its ups and downs. For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more. Sangiovese re...
