Brunello di Montalcino Piaggione DOCG 2001

Made from 100% Sangiovese harvested from the Vigna del Teatro and Vigna del Piaggione vineyards. After traditional red wine fermentation, the wine is aged in a combination of large French and Slavonian oak casks for 3 years. The wine is bottled without fining or filtration and is matured for an additional year in bottle. This Brunello exhibits intense garnet color with a floral and fruity bouquet. Solid tannic structure surrounds an ample palate that shows hints of coffee and chocolate on the finish. Intense and persistent.

Tasting Notes

Intense garnet color with a complete balsamic, spiced and fruity nose. Strong tannic structure with an ample palate. Hints of chocolate and coffee on the finish. Intense and persistent.

Food Pairing

Recommended with grilled meat and game. Excellent with aged cheeses.
