The greatest expression of Brunello, produced only in exceptional vintages
Carefully selected from the best cask in the cellar, our Brunello Riserva is undeniably
elegant and impressing. A bouquet of black cherry with hints dried roses and white smoke.
It is soft and mineral with fine tannins and spicy notes of licorice and red currant, the
Riserva slowly flexes its muscle throughout the long and savory finish.
Steak Florentine, fillet steak, dishes with truffles or porcini
We suggest to decant the wine at least 1 hour before serving. This wine shows its best after
some years of aging but is already outstanding now.
Serve at 16–18°C
Each vintage of this wine is produced by selecting the best cask in the cellar. This wine
usually comes from the oldest vineyards, and it ages more time in oak than Brunello. The
soil is poor and rocky, mainly composed of clay and limestone. The production area is
located in Castelnuovo dell’Abate, facing the Orcia River valley in the South-East region of
Montalcino. The harvest is made manually. The selection of the grapes is exceptionally
rigorous, resulting in very low yields. Vinification is in oak vats, with spontaneous
fermentations led by indigenous yeasts and long macerations. This wine aged for 45 months
in 30 hl Slavonian oak casks
