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.
The colour is an intense ruby red with garnet reflections, clear and brilliant.
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 for a minimum of ten years and up to thirty, 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 should not be less than 5 years, of which at least 2 must be in oak, while the ageing in the bottle must last for at least 4 months. The colour is an intense ruby red with garnet reflections, clear and brilliant.
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.
