“Oliveto P.56” Brunello di Montalcino DOCG Riserva 2015

The “P.56” Riserva is produced only in outstanding years from the point of view of the climate and the quality of the fruit, from a selection of less than 10% of the finest grapes from the oldest vineyards. In its production, we follow the same philosophy as that applied to our other Brunellos, but extending the length of each phase and increasing the use of new oak, in order to enhance the grapes’ potential to the full. The result is a wine of great elegance,
structure and longevity which, over time, will express all the potential of our splendid terroir as well as the perfect weather of the years in which it is produced.

Food pairings

Its ideal accompaniments are main courses of red meat and game. It is also excellent with cheeses, root vegetables, vegetable stews and Asian dishes.

Vinification and maturation

 

Temperature-controlled vinification in stainless steel and fermentation with indigenous yeasts; long maceration (six weeks). Maturation for 3 years in large (20 and 35 hl) Slavonian oak casks.

Finally, the wine clears naturally by settling in stainless steel and is then left to rest for a minimum of 18 months in bottle before release onto the market.
