BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO DOCG 2016
COLOUR: Intense ruby red color with garnet reflections.
AROMAS: Scents very elegant on the nose, aromas of ripe red fruits like black cherry and blueberry emerge immediately, spicy elements reminiscent of thyme and cinnamon blend well, with an elegant mineral finish with hints of graphite.
TASTE: In the mouth a lot of energy and concentration, but also a nice acidity which gives the right tension. Very persistent, suitable for long aging in the bottle.
CLIMATE TREND: The 2016 vintage was an excellent year characterized by good rains in April and May which gave the plant good vegetative development. The summer months were characterized by the month of June which was particularly rainy, which particularly occupied us in phytosanitary control, but this also contributed to the growth of the branches, while the month of July was particularly hot, which favored the formation of the bunch and accelerated the veraison phase. The drop in temperatures in August favored the movement towards the clusters of all the substances necessary to obtain a product of excellent quality, from a polyphenolic and aromatic point of view. September was cool but sunny, guaranteeing an excellent harvest from a health and quality point of view. Vintage rated five stars by the Brunello di Montalcino wine consortium.
