Chiuso del Lupo Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2016

Exceptional and elegant: all the characteristics of the best Brunello di Montalcino are expressed in the new Cru of Brunello di Montalcino signed by Poggio Landi. The wine gets its name from the place where is located the vine of 1 hectare, literally “closed” in the wood. Obtained from 100% Sangiovese grapes and traditionally vinified, after two weeks of natural and spontaneous fermentation, the wine is decanted into large French oak barrels of 30 Hl and 54Hl, where it will age for 38 months. Subsequently refined in the bottle for at least 6 months. Deep ruby red with garnet reflections, the nose expresses hints of licorice and black cherry, with deep references of wild berries and leather. The sip releases impetuous tannins of great strength and persistence.

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.
