Brunello di Montalcino:
– Made from 100% Sangiovese grapes from a specific clone called “Brunello” in the town of Montalcino. Situated in the southwestern part of Tuscany the town of Montalcino sits on a ridge about 400 feet above the Eastern plain. This ridge divides the region into three diverse growing areas.
These grapes were from a vineyard between 240-260 meters above sea level and with medium grain soil with good levels of marl dating back to the Eocene period. The wine was fermented in stainless steel and glass concrete eats. Aged for more than 24 months in Slavonian oak barrels, followed by over 8 months of bottle refinement.
