Brunello di Montalcino Riserva DOCG 2012

Made from 100% Sangiovese, manually harvested in October. The wine is fermented in stainless steel and macerated by frequent pumpovers and punch downs. Aging is done in French barriques for a period of two years, before an additional year in the bottle for further refinement.

Tasting Notes

This wine is ruby-red with garnet highlights. The bouquet is full and harmonic, with notes of plums, spices, dried flowers and earthy undertones such as tobacco, anise and coffee. This Brunello is dry, warm and well-structured, with an elegant and persistent finish.

Food Pairing

Pair with roast meat and wild fowl.
