Degustation notes

Dense garnet colour, an intense bouquet of ripe berries and plums that recalls Rumtopf, a nuance of leather and raisins, well balanced on the palate with a nice concentration of fruit, perfect balance, rich in extracts with a lot of character, well integrated structure, delicate, lovely tannins with magnificent length.

Special notes

Greppone Mazzi is the domain where Ruffino produces its Brunello di Montalcino wine. Located in the western part of Montalcino, in the center of Brunello's historical production. Planted at an altitude of 450-500 meters, the vines benefit from the advantages of the hilly terrain that the DOCG Brunello di Montalcino appellation offers. The Tenuta Greppone Mazzi extends over an area of 120 hectares. The winery is also home to some very old olive trees and grain fields. Brunello di Montalcino is one of the most sought after Italian red wines on the international market. It is vinified from a particular variety of Sangiovese grape called """SangioveseGrosso"""" or Brunello. This wine is on the market no earlier than January 1st of the sixth year after its harvest and must be agedin oak barrels for at least two years before being refined in bottles for a minimum of four months.

    sehr guter Wein. Fast schon orange in der Farbe. Ob man den Preis dafür bezahlen will oder nicht muss jeder für sich selbst entscheiden. Es gibt sicherlich günstigere Variante mit ähnlicher Qualität auf dem Markt.
