Brunello di Montalcino Riserva
TYPE OF FARMING:
Manual, in the first 10 days of October. Brunello Riserva is produced only when the harvest is brilliant, as 2015 year.
It is made in the traditional way with modern technology from the Sangiovese varietal known in Montalcino as “Brunello”. After a careful and accurate selection of the grapes, the picked and crushed grapes are then fermented at controlled temperature in steel vats that are often stirred and left to macerate in their skins for a long time.
After vinification the wine is allowed to age for at least 50 months in Slavonia and French oak barrels. Five years after the harvest, it is bottled and then continues its aging process in the bottle for six months, as the production disciplinary indicates.
Ruby red colour with flashes of garnet. The nose is full, with a rich with vanilla, violets and cherries hints and a robust flavour that is warm and generous. On the palate it’s full-bodied with a decisive freshness, and velvety tannins. It reveals spicy aromas with underbrush hints. It matches with flavourful Italian cuisine, especially roasted meat and seasoned cheeses.
