Best white wine I’ve ever tasted — 3 months ago
We tasted a lot of wines in #montalcino and this is the bottle we bought to take home with us. Delicious and generous. #brunello ANNUAL PRODUCTION:
The vineyards are in the hills of Montalcino, at different heights and with a sun exposure until sunset. The age of the vineyards from which we select the grapes destined to produce Brunello is more than 20 years. Average altitude of the vineyards: 250 mt s.l.m.
Tuffaceous clay, very rich in fossils.
Large Sangiovese 100%.
bilateral and balanced cordon.
DENSITY FOR HECTARE:
The vineyards are subject to thinning of bunches, the average criteria is, in good vintages, three bunches of five stay on. The grapes thus obtained are further selected in the cellar, where they are processed according to the old tradition. It proceeds to intense extraction in the early stages of fermentation, followed by long quiescent maceration on the marc; the maximum temperature is raised up to 33 °C and maintained at high values until the racking. The ageing in wood lasts 36 months in oak barrels from Slavonia hl 17.50. It follows bottle ageing for 12 months far beyond the mandatory minimum of four months from production regulations. — a year ago
Just falls short of excellency. Great mouthfeel. Not too acidic for a riesling, medium fruitiness and balanced intensity. — 9 months ago
Fresh, almost like an austrian Sauvignon Blanc, just without the cat pee:-) — 5 months ago
Probably the best Pinot Gris I’ve had in many years; in a perfect alsacian style. — 7 months ago
