For over a century of production, it is the most important red wine. In the cellar of Barbi Farm, one can see a collection of thousands of bottles of Brunello, starting from the harvest of 1892. It ferments on average for 14 days in steel tanks without ever exceeding 28°C. It is then refined for at least 2 years in barrels of Slavonian oak and four months in bottles. So it arrives on the market ready to drink, but with such a structure to prolong its life in the bottle for many years.
"The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is one of the more elegant, understated wines of the vintage. Sweet red cherries, tobacco, licorice and new leather are some of the notes that emerge from this somewhat lithe yet totally classy wine.

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.
