A ruby colour, a typical scent, a dry, lightly tannic taste stand as its major, successful features. Long regarded as the finest expression of Italian oenology Brunello di Montalcino is produced exclusively from Sangiovese grapes (named “Brunello” in Montalcino). Made according to the standards of a severe discipline that, as well as fixing limits on yields per hectare, the period of obligatory ageing and the characteristics of the product, also establishes that before the wine can be sold it must be subjected to examination by an appropriate commission. The regular Brunello ages 5 years, the Riserva 6 years.
