Poggio al Vento Brunello di Montalcino Riserva DOCG

Riserva 1998


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

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

Weather conditions:
A late and beautiful spring has favoured flowering and fruit set, causing a large production.A dry summer and temperatures widely above the average have drastically reduced theweight of the bunches. An accurate and rigorous green harvest has allowed a perfect maturation of the grapes.

Particular clones of Sangiovese, locally called "Brunello". Vintage 1998 yield: 41 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 2 years of refinement in bottle, all of this in a conditioned environment.

Main Features

Deep and dense ruby red with light garnet hues.

Inviting, enveloping and yet still youthful. The perfectly matured fruit of the great Sangiovese dominates over the intriguing spices of the oak.

The elegance of the ample and engaging sensations dominates over the great outstanding tannic power: The structured body is reinforced by mature and therefore non-astringent tannins, in a long and enthralling aftertaste.
