Brunello di Montalcino 2019

Our Brunello di Montalcino 2019 originates from Capanna vineyard, located in the north-west area of Montalcino. The peculiar characteristics of this vineyard, such as the natural isolation along with the altitude and the type of soil, which shows presence of clay shale and marl (Galestro rock), give to this prestigious wine a refined elegance as well as great personality.

The 2019 vintage

The 2019 vintage was characterized by a dry winter, with below-average rainfall, which was then largely restored in the spring, in the cool and rainy month of May. Compared with previous vintages, summer was in no hurry to arrive, and when the July heat began to show, the sun was making its warmth known, but without exaggeration. The rains returned in late August, followed by a cool, breezy September that gave the grapes plenty of time for optimal ripening, with perfect healthy conditions. The harvest, exclusively done by hand, began on September 22nd and ended at the beginning of October.

Tasting notes

“The 2019 Brunello is a great expression of a balanced vintage. The color is clear and vibrant to the eye. The intense nose plays on floral and herbal hints. In the mouth the tannins are balanced and well integrated, making a pleasant wine with enjoyable peaks of freshness. On the finish a clean and harmonious aftertaste.”
