Goes well with
All flavourful dishes, grilled food, cheese
Powerfully dense garnet colour, a nose dominated by aromas of earth, sediment and mature spices, discreet aromas of raisins accompagny a strong nose, a rustic attack on the palate, notes of ripe berries, nuances of plum, with good structure (tannins and acidity) and moderate magnitude. A well executed, traditional Brunello. Good to drink while eating.
The Brunello di Montalcino is one of the most sought after italian red wines on the international market. It is vinified from a particular type of Sangiovese grape called the "Sangiovese Grosso"" or Brunello grape. This wine is sold as of January 1st of the sixth year after harvest, at the earliest. It matures in oak barrels for at least two years and is kept in bottles for a minimum of four months to age properly. The producers of this famous wine are allowed to sell their Brunello under the ""Rosso di Montalcino"" appellation. An opportunity that they seize when a harvest is less favorable (as in 1992 and 2002). In 1960, the growing area that the Brunello grape occupied was barely 63 hectares for eleven vintners. A few years later the institution of the consortium of Brunello di Montalcino allowed several other farms - large and small - to engage in the production of this extraordinary wine. Today, there are over 200 domains covering more than 1800 hectares of vineyards with this grape variety.

sehr gut - Sehr feiner Wein. Am liebsten einfach nur zum Geniessen. Erinnerungen an die Toskana werden wach.
