Brunello di Montalcino 2013

PRODUCTION ZONE: the estate owns two different and differently located vineyard parcels. One is Le Prata, with a southwestern exposure at an altitude of some 1640 feet (500 meters) above sea level while the other, La Torre, has a southeastern exposure and is situated at approximately 1375 feet (420 meters) of altitude. After their period of cask aging, the two wines are blended and then bottled to produce one single wine.

GRAPE VARIETIES: Sangiovese 100%.

COLOR, AROMA & FLAVOUR: an intense ruby red with light purple highlights which recall the tonality of violets. The scent of this flower also characterizes the first impact on the nose, which is suave and elegant in its fusion with the additional notes of berry fruit.
The flavors fully correspond to the impression left on the nose. The first impact is firm, the mid-palate ample, fruity and floral, the texture heightened by velvety tannins which,  together with the savory and mineral sensations, give the wine both lenght and persistence and an important drinking pleasure.
