Tasting Notes

COLOUR: Intense ruby red with garnet shades.

AROMAS: At first aromas of ripe red fruits as cherry and blackberry, spicy hints that remind thyme and sage.

TASTE: Extremely attractive aromas, full body, pretty texture.

VINTAGE VARIATION: The beginning of the Spring was characterized by heavy rainfall. April was sunny and warm while in the month of May we had rain above the average, which helped the plants to accumulate important water supplies and overcome the summer dryness.

June, July and August were hot but without sultry peaks and affected by some rains that allowed the plants not to go into water stress. September was cool but sunny so the grapes reached the right ripeness and a perfect aromas concentration.

BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO DOCG 2014

Tasting Notes

COLOUR: Intense ruby red color with garnet reflections.

AROMAS: Opens with floral aromas reminiscent of violet, then fruity notes emerge, reminiscent of orange with toasted licorice elements inserted.

TASTE: Riper aromas, long and delicious, drink or hold.

VINTAGE VARIATION: Pretty regular spring with just rains in April and May. The summer was cool, characterized by never high temperatures that allowed a slow and gradual development of the plant, but also by frequent rains that severely demands accurate management in the vineyard. Finally, September was characterized by beautiful days interspersed with good amount of rains which allowed the fruits to progress in a slow but gradual accumulation of sugars and polyphenolic components. The harvest was therefore carried out in several moments in order to best select the best bunches.

Tasting Notes

COLOUR: Intense ruby red with garnet shades.

AROMAS: At first intense aromas of ripe fruit like sour cherry and blackberry well integrated with tertiary elements given by the long aging in big barrels and the necessary bottle refining.

TASTE: Smooth cherries, great structure, pure élégance.

VINTAGE VARIATION: During the first week of April our Sangiovese vines have sprouted and they kept growing thanks to the abundant water supply from 2014 and 2015 winter rainfall. The weather was then dry and sunny, at the beginning of August some rainy days helped the vines and the temperature dropped allowing the plants to make the photosynthesis in the best conditions and to obtain the perfect ripeness.

This vintage has been rated ad a 5 stars vintage by the Consorzio del vino Brunello di Montalcino.
