La Mannella Brunello di Montalcino 2012

La Mannella Brunello di Montalcino 2012

A luscious dark crimson Brunello with bountiful and intense aromas of red fruit, blackberry, spice, leather and cedar wood that lingers. The wine is clean, chiseled and sharp, but bold and generous, at the same time. There is a touch of bitter almond, followed by softer tones of red berry and spice on the palate, with a long, lingering finish.

The grapes for this wine come from the heart of Montalcino, on 8 hecatres of family-owned vines situated on the north side of the city. The soil is rocky clay, with excellent exposure to the sun. The vineyard trellis system is spurred cordon, with the winemaking following tradition for making superior Brunello. After careful selection of the hand-picked grapes, fermentation takes place with masceration for 25 days in Slovenian oak vats. The wine then spends 36 months in large Slovenian oak casks
This wine is a perfect accompaniment for red meats and various Italian cheeses.
