Brunello di Montalcino 2012

Brunello di Montalcino DOCG

This elegant, traditional style Brunello is produced at a mid-sized estate located in the southern hills of Montalcino, between the towns of Sant’ Angelo in Colle and Castelnuovo dell’Abate, one of the most quintessentially picturesque areas in Tuscany. The vineyards are south-east exposed and trellised with single spurred cordon, with soils that are extremely stony and made up of a shale and clay mix known locally as “galestro.” The 2012 Brunello underwent a a 25-day fermentation and maceration in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. It was then aged for 3 years in large Slavonian oak casks, and bottle aged for an additional 4 months before release. 

Vineyard
