Brunello di Montalcino DOCG Col d'Orcia

Vintage 2000


Production area:
Montalcino - Siena - Locality Sant'Angelo in Colle. Hilly lands enjoying a favourable southern position, giving a wonderful sunny exposure all day long. Average height: 300 m above sea level.

Weather conditions:
Rather rainy spring, very hot end of June and beginning of July followed by cooler temperatures until the first half of August with 40 mm of beneficial rain. Torrid heat around the second fortnight of August. Due to a rigid selection of the grapes and to a reduced production, the results achieved are of an extremely high level, with concentrations and colours above the average. Harvest took place about 15 days earlier than usual.

Particular clones of Sangiovese, locally called "Brunello". Manual harvest with rigorous selection of the best bunches in the vineyard at first and subsequently on a selection table in the cellar. Maximum yield allowed by the Production Regulation is 80 q/ha. Vintage 2000 yield: 49 q/ha.

Fermentation on the skins for about 18-20 days, at controlled temperature below 30° C in 150 hl wide and short stainless steel tanks, designed and built in order to extract tannins and colour efficiently but delicately.

4 years, 3 of which in Slavonic and Allier 50 and 75 hl oak casks followed by at least 6 months refinement in bottles placed in storage at a controlled temperature.

Main Features

Still fresh, ample and deep. The characteristic varietal fruit is framed by the noble oak spices deriving from the casks.
