Brunello di Montalcino DOCG
BALANCE AND YOUTH.
Usual very young ruby red. Great balance at the nose among small red fruits and spices followed by hints of chocolate. The greatness of the vintage comes out immediately at the first sip: amazing balance among all the components with perfectly ripe tannins and bright acidity. Everything is standing for a great immediate pleasure providing at the same time a great aging potential.
The 2016 vintage is the perfect balance among elegance, opulence, structure and complexity. Winter was warmer than average with some rain in February while budding was regular during the first week of April. Flowering took place on the last week of May with sunnier days, following a mild summer with sporadic rainfall. Ripening process was slowly but consistent, also thanks to the big range between day and night temperatures right before harvest.
Manual in the first week of October
We select the bunches manually before de-stemming and selecting the grapes with an optical selector. After that, spontaneous fermentation without added yeasts follows and maceration is facilitated by frequent pressing. Everything takes place in conical steel vats at controlled temperature for 25 days.
