Brunello di Montalcino DOCG Col d'Orcia

Vintage 2001


Production area:
Montalcino – Siena – S. Angelo in Colle. Hilly lands enjoying a favourable southern exposition which grants the vineyards with the blessing of the sun rays the whole day long. Average height 300 mt above sea level.

Weather conditions:
Vintage characterized by the rough frost of April 16th, which drastically reduced quantities luckily to the advantage of quality. A wave of heat on the last week of July and the first of August considerably anticipated harvest: the fist Sangiovese was picked on September 3rd.

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 2001 yield: 41 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 controlled temperature.

Main Features

Intense ruby red, with evident youthful hues.

Complex, fresh, ample and deep. The spices of the oak are integrated with harmony in the inviting varietal fruit.

The full and still slightly tannic structure is incorporated in a rich and pulpy body, promising a remarkable aging potential. An enveloping harmony leads into a warm and long aftertaste.
