Poggio al Vento Brunello di Montalcino Riserva DOCG

Riserva 1999


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

Particular clones of Sangiovese, locally called “Brunello”. Vintage 1999 yield: 48 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.

Different olfactory notes, still fresh, with a perfect balance between the oak spices and the varietal fruits. The balsamic notes invite to a long olfactive analyses before the tasting.

Well-based acidity, the powerful body envolopes mature tannins and reveals a rare and complex flavour. Thick and pleasant sensations rise from mid palate leading to an aftertaste of great harmony and elegance.
