| An extraordinary vintage! The grapes were very healthy. After the grapes have been destemmed, they were left to macerate for a short time. Then spontaneous fermentation started. The Brunello matured in barrels for 47 months. Neither artificial yeast nor any other enzymatic or technological additives have been used during the whole period of transformation of the wine.
Barbecue smoke and mesquite wood are the most immediate aromas you will notice here. You’ll also recognize background tones of black peppercorn, lead pencil and licorice. The wine delivers loads of intensity in the mouth. This a big, thick and dense expression that is ready to drink now.
