ITALIAN FINE RED WINE
Brunello di Montalcino is a wine made with 100% Sangiovese with Italy’s highest D.O.C.G. classification. Roberto’s Brunello grapes are noted for having thicker- skinned berries and, because of this, his Brunello produces wines with exceptionally bold fruit flavours, high tannin, and high acidity.
The fruit may be a highlight to the enduring popularity of The Vinum Brunello di Montalcino, but it’s the tannins and acidity that extend the life of this wine until it reaches perfection a decade or more later. Roberto adopted the traditional method of using more well-used large Slavonian oak barrels that impart very little oak lactones into his wine, and are used simply as vessels to encourage tertiary flavour development through oxygen exposure.
The outcome of such a delicate and complex undertaking, from the vine to the bottle is a fascinating and elegant Brunello di Montalcino, perfectly harmonic and with a long aging potential.
