2016 VINTAGES
5 STARS

A “cool” vintage. The winter proved generally mild and averagely wet. The spring brought zero problems and the vines responded well. The summer changed the face of this vintage: temperatures never reached their usual highs and rainfall was evenly distributed. During the harvest, which began at the end of September, the conditions were mild with significant swings in temperature between day and night, ensuring optimal grapes.

Winemaker's Notes

Brunello di Montalcino 2016 is traditionally vinified. After two weeks of natural spontaneous fermentation, the wine is racked into 30Hl and 54Hl French oak barrels where it ages for 38 months. Refined in bottle for 6 months minimum.

Complex on the nose, with distinctive nuances of ripe red fruit and spices such as black pepper and licorice. The same ripe red fruits continue on the palate, accompanied by vanilla notes. Very long finish.
