Winemaker's Notes

The Brunello di Montalcino is one of Italys most important and prestigious wines. The grapes are grown within the township of Montalcino and released four years after harvest. Grapes: 100% Sangiovese Grosso. Vinification: medium-length steeping on the skins, with temperature-controlled fermentation. Finishing: three and a half years in Slovenian oak barrels, followed by a bottle aging period of at least six months in temperature controlled cellars. Color: intense ruby red, with pale pomegranate highlights. Bouquet: decisive, fine, broad and lingering with hints of vanilla, cherry, raspberry, and licorice. Flavor: dry, warm, smooth, well-textured and lingering on the palate. Alcohol: 13.50% by volume. Serving temperature: 18-20°C, 64-66°F, in a decanter. Gastronomy: great wine with roasts, grilled meats, wild game, and elaborate dishes, as well as rare T-bone steaks.
