Pure Sangiovese from a selection of the best grapes of our vineyards, matured in 30 hl Slavonian oak barrels for 30 months with subsequent ageing of four months in the bottle. Uniting traditional and modern technology, Brunello has always been a great wine, certainly important and a pleasure to drink. When it is young, it is rich in scents of fruit and flowers. When it has aged, it acquires complex ethereal characteristics and offers a broad bouquet with an aroma of autumn leaves.

Wine EnthusiastAromas of wild berry, thyme and a whiff of cellar floor lead the nose on this structured red while the full-bodied palate offers dried black cherry, white pepper, sage and anise. Tightly wound tannins provide framework. Give it a few years to unfurl then drink up.
