Poggio al Vento Brunello di Montalcino Riserva DOCG

Riserva 2007


Production area:
Montalcino  -  Siena  - Sant'Angelo hill overlooking the Orcia River facing South-South/West.

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

Weather conditions:
Mild winter with few rainfalls. High temperatures in spring  followed by a moderate summer season. Helpful rainfalls in August led to a regular harvest.

Particular clones of Sangiovese, locally called “Brunello” coming from the Col d’Orcia selection. The choice of the harvest time was based on finding the perfect ripeness to produce a long-lived, structured wine. Manual harvest with rigorous selection of the best bunches, in the vineyard at first and then on the selection table in the cellar. Vintage 2007 yield: 50 q/ha.

Fermentation at controlled temperature of 28°C. in stainless steel tanks of 50 and 60 hl. The different areas of the vineyard were kept separate. During the maceration, that lasted 20-25 days, daily pump-over and long “delestages” were carried out. Mallolactic fermentation took place in concrete. From there the wine went directly into barrels in the spring of 2008.

4 years in Slavonian and Allier oak barrels of 25 and 75 hl. followed by about 2 years of further aging in bottle in a temperature controlled environment.
