Brunello di Montalcino

Brunello Di Montalcino is one of my favorite Italian wines. Is made with 100% Sangiovese grape 🍇 .

According to the ‘Wine Bible’ the altitude and climate of the Montalcino region has provided an area where Sangiovese ripens more fully and consistently than anywhere else in Tuscany. These factors contribute to the body, color, extract and tannins commonly associated with Brunello di Montalcino.[2] In contrast to Chianti, the other famous Sangiovese based wine of Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcinos have a more fleshy texture with common aromas and flavors of blackberry, black cherry, black raspberry, chocolate, leather and violets.

James.suckling from the ‘Wine Expectator’ states that ‘the current aging requirements were established in 1998 and dictate that Brunellos are to be aged in oak for 2 years and at least 4 months in a bottle before release’. They are a bit expensive but great for especial occasions.•

James.suckling del ‘Wine Expectator’ afirma que ‘los requisitos actuales de envejecimiento se establecieron en 1998 y dictaminan que los Brunellos se añejarán en roble durante 2 años y al menos 4 meses en una botella antes de su lanzamiento’. Son un poco caros, pero ideal para ocasiones especiales.
