Poggio al Vento Brunello di Montalcino Riserva DOCG

Riserva 1997


Production area:
Montalcino  -  Siena  -  Sant'Angelo in Colle. Vineyard on the southern slopes enjoying a favourable exposition.

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

Weather conditions:
The late flowering was recovered before summer. In April, a strong frost (the first one in 15 years), reduced considerably the quantity leading to a very anticipated harvest with high concentrations.

Particular clones of Sangiovese, locally called "Brunello". Vintage 1997 yield: 39 q/ha.  Manual harvest with rigorous selection of the best bunches, first in the vineyards and subsequently on a selection table in the cellar before the vinification.

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), punching down was done daily in the morning, pumping over in the evening.

In Slavonian and French oak casks for 4 years, then followed by 18 months of refinement in the bottle (all in air conditioned environment).

Tasting notes

Deep and dense ruby red with light garnet hues.

Inviting, very complex, almost balsamic. The varietal strength of the Brunello expresses itself at the best, framed by the noble oak and the beginning tertiary process.

A unique combination of power and elegance. Structure with important but delicate tannins, with a polished fullness that doesn’t overwhelm. It leaves the palate impressed by a myriad of small and pleasant sensations.
