Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
This is a gorgeous wine with loads of intensity and fruit. You can expect the wine to age many years in the cellar thanks to the integrity of the cherry, blackberry and plum flavors. In the mouth, the wine is soft, round and smooth although the tannins could use a few more years to soften.

Citille di Sopra, Italy
Citille di Sopra was established in 1997 when the Innocenti family passed it on to their son Fabio, who had already owned a share of the farm since 1992. He decided to set up the wine business alongside the farm’s decade-old core business: the cultivation of cereals. A careful evaluation of the soil determined which vine shoots and clones of Sangiovese were best to use. In addition rammed cord was chosen in order to take into account qualitative production values and geographic specificity. Of the more than one hundred hectares that make up the property, only 5,5 hectares are currently vineyards, and these are situated in the area best suited to making Brunello.

Famous for its bold, layered and long-lived red, Brunello di Montalcino, the town of Montalcino is about 70 miles south of Florence, and has a warmer and drier climate than that of its neighbor, Chianti. The Sangiovese grape is king here, as it is in Chianti, but Montalcino has its own clone called Brunello.

The Brunello vineyards of Montalcino blanket the rolling hills surrounding the village and fan out at various elevations, creating the potential for Brunello wines expressing different styles. From the valleys, where deeper deposits of clay are found, come wines typically bolder, more concentrated and rich in opulent black fruit. The hillside vineyards produce wines more concentrated in red fruits and floral aromas; these sites reach up to over 1,600 feet and have shallow soils of rocks and shale.

Brunello di Montalcino by law must be aged a minimum of four years, including two years in barrel before realease and once released, typically needs more time in bottle for its drinking potential to be fully reached. The good news is that Montalcino makes a “baby brother” version. The wines called Rosso di Montalcino are often made from younger vines, aged for about a year before release, offer extraordinary values and are ready to drink young.
