Podere Brizio Brunello Di Montalcino Riserva 2016
They made this Brunello di Montalcino from their vineyards in the southwest of Montalcino at an altitude of 300350 meters above sea level facing the sea and the Maremma. This is Montalcino's hottest area. Here the soil consists of sandstone and rocky marl, which allows the production of well-structured, mineral wines.
An exceptional wine, exquisite, complex and rich in minerals. Produced from hand-harvested grapes and fermented naturally for two weeks after soft pressing and destemming. The wine is aged in 54hl Allier French oak barrels for 48 months and refined in bottles for a one-year minimum. Clean and intense bouquet with very ripe fruit and herbal nuances. Well-balanced, fresh and intense in the mouth. Lasting and mature tannins. Black fruit and spice accompany soft vanilla flavours. Intense finish.
Excellent with mature cheeses, grilled meats and game.
94 Points - Wine Enthusiast
Violet, wild berry and sandalwood aromas come to the forefront along with new leather. Made with organically farmed grapes, the full-bodied, enveloping palate features ripe black cherry, licorice, mint and espresso framed in fine-grained, velvety tannins.
