Brunello Riserva Millecento 2015

Elegance, character, and persistence are what make Millecento 2015 a wine for the ages. The barrel aging emphasized the characteristics of the vintage, enhancing the Sangiovese aromas, wonderful balance, and superb tannins. A great acidity supports the superb aging potential.

 

The 2015 vintage

The 2015 harvest, was a textbook vintage in terms of the climate and the exceptional quality of the grapes. July and August were hot and dry, and the soil’s water reserves, which accumulated in the spring, helped to counteract the heat, leading to a superb vintage, which benefited from day-night temperature swings in September, hence the perfect ripening of the berries. The coolness of the weeks in the run-up to the harvest resulted in the perfect concentration of the aromas and ideal tannic maturation. The hand-picked grapes were healthy and integral, boasting small bunches and sparse berries, while the sugar content and acidity were exceptional.
