Our Brunello Riserva is produced only in the vintages we consider excellent. For this wine we choose the best bunches from our Brunello vineyards, for a maximum of 2000 bottles per year. To make it even more precious, each bottle is numbered by hand and a small percentage of them has a label engraved by hand on the glass by a local artisan.
Color: Brilliant, deep ruby-red, quite intense.
Nose: Intense aroma, where the hints of red ripe fruit, especially plum and blueberry, leave room for complex mineral and balsamic notes.
Mouth: very balanced in the mouth, with solid and balanced body. The tannic structure is well blended to the other components. Final of considerable length.
Pairing: For this wine the perfect combination is our Fiorentina steak, but nothing takes away the possibility of pairing with cheeses of prolonged maturation (e.g. Parmigiano Reggiano, Castelmagno, Monte Veronese, Pecorino della Triana or Maremma). If we want to taste it as a meditation wine, a good combination can be dark chocolate.
