Descrizione vino

The rosso of Montalcino has been always considered as the “minor brother” of the most famous Brunello, but actually is a classy and important wine. The rosso of Montalcino of the Brunelli estate is produced in Montalcino. The vineyards are placed on a medium mixture territory with a great persistence in the structure and it is at 300 m in highness. The grapes are Sangiovese in purity. The grapes are destemmed and pressed and let to ferment. The contact between peels takes about 2 days. After the racking the wine is left in tanks at ambient temperature to permit the malolactic fermentation. The ageing takes 9 months in Slavonia oak barrels and a period in French oak barrels. Follows an additional refinement in bottles for 4 months.
