Poggio al Vento Brunello di Montalcino Riserva DOCG

Riserva 1988


Production area:
Montalcino   -  Siena  -   Sant'Angelo in Colle. Hilly lands enjoying southern exposition.

Poggio al Vento. Average height: 350 mt above sea level. Planted in 1974.

Weather conditions:
A very good vintage with ordinary weather conditions: adequate rain in spring, regular hot and dry temperatures in summer. As a result the wines are very concentrated, structured and have a long ageing capacity.

Particular clones of Sangiovese, locally called “Brunello”. Vintage 1988 yield: 65 q/ha. Manual harvest with rigorous selection of the best bunches, in the vineyard at first and subsequently on the selection belt in the cellar.

Fermentation at controlled temperature below 30°C. 25 days of maceration in wide and short stainless steel tanks (greater contact between skins and must with a better polyphenolic extraction), daily punching down in the morning and pumping over in the evening.

4 years in Slavonian and French oak casks, followed by 15 months of refinement in bottle, all of this in a conditioned environment.

Main Features

Deep and dense ruby red with light garnet hues.  

Intense, powerful and elegant, with underbrush hints harmoniously wrapped by threads of oak vanilla.  

Characterised by a high content of “noble” tannins that mixed together well during the refinement period, so as to give a long persistence in the mouth and great taste sensations.

Alcohol content:
14,0 % vol.

Total acidity:
5.5 g/l

Serving temperature:
18° C

Better decant before serving
