Tasting Note:

A blend of wine from parcels north and south of Montalcino, the average of vines is 45 years old. A fresh, poised and slightly brooding Brunello, certainly not decadent. A measured, classic and intense wine with notes of herb, teal leaf, cassis, damson and cherry, gripped by tight-grained tannins, finishing on warmer more expansive fruit notes of sloe and fruit liqueur. The wine is aged in 30-40% new oak. After 13 months of ageing, rigorous cellar tastings take place and the decision for what will be the final Brunello blends are made. The Brunellos then complete a further 24 months of barriques ageing followed by 18 months in bottle.
