Brunello di Montalcino DOCG Riserva 2012

Complex and well-structured, our Brunello di Montalcino represents the perfect combination of power, finesse, and long aging potential.

Food pairings

It finds its perfect match in refined, richly flavored red meats such as game (and wild boar in particular), stews, or mature cheeses. It also goes well with grilled vegetables, mushrooms, and spicy dishes.

Vinification and maturation

Temperature-controlled vinification in stainless steel and fermentation with indigenous yeasts; 4 weeks’ maceration. Maturation for 3 years
in large (20 and 35 hl) Slavonian oak casks for three-quarters of the wine, and for the rest
in 500 lt. French oak tonneaux, used once previously. Finally, the wine
clears naturally by settling in stainless steel
and is then left to rest for a minimum of six months in bottle before release onto the market.
