There is no hiding it, we love Brunellos and this wine significantly over-delivers on the price value equation. This property dates back to the 13th Century and produces what is considered one of the best value Estate Brunellos. As with many of the wines produced in the clay driven southwest Montalcino, this wine is a lighter, floral old-world style wine.
Climate: the oenological result in 2014 was the consequence of a production project designed specifically to maximize all the variables in the vineyard. Particular importance has played the role of biological treatments that have been carried out in large numbers, given the season, but using copper microdoses that have stimulated the production of the plant's natural defenses and at the same time have guaranteed the formation of a very thick sangiovese skin and of great color: index of the substantial accumulation of anthocyanic coloring substances, and polyphenols, which have positively influenced the overall quality of musts.

Pairing: The elegance and harmonic body of the wine permit its combination with many complex and complicated dishes such as red meat, feathered and furry game also accompanied by mushrooms or truffles. Brunello, in addition, is excellent with cheeses: aged tomes, parmesan, Tuscan pecorino. It also makes an excellent combination with meat dishes of international cuisine or with complicated sauces. Because of its characteristics, Brunello is also a very pleasant wine to enjoy on its own.
