BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO DOCG 2015

One of the most famous red wines in the world, Brunello di Montalcino DOCG is produced in Tuscany, within the Municipality of Montalcino, in Siena’s province, a territory with a centenary vocation for top-quality vineyards.

Made exclusively of Sangiovese grapes, it lends itself to ageing, maturing and improving over time. It can be stored up to thirty years and more, depending on the characteristics of the vintage production. Bottles should be kept in a dark, cool, temperature-controlled space, free of noise or smells.

The ageing period is around 4 years, 3 of which take place in large oak barrels, followed by a long stay in the bottle. The colour is an intense ruby red with garnet reflections, clear and brilliant.

Brunello di Montalcino has an intense, persistent, broad and ethereal scent, with hints of spice, small red fruit, cherries, undergrowth and dried rose. On the palate, it is elegant, harmonious, dry, with a long-lasting aromatic persistence, balanced and wrapping tannins.

It perfectly matches with red meat, game, mushrooms and truffles; it is also excellent in combination with seasoned cheeses such as Pecorino and Parmesan cheese. Brunello di Montalcino DOCG is an ideal wine for meditation.
