Il Marroneto Brunello di Montalcino 2007
"Mid to pale ruby with broad rim. Undeniably opulent, but with good balance and tension and lovely palate weight. (WS)" (02/12) - 16.5+ out of 20 Points, Jancis Robinson's Purple Pages Wine: "A classic and elegant Brunello that is fragrant and fruity on the nose and well-structured on the palate, with a long elegant finish. Pairs well with roasted meat dishes and robust Tuscan recipes." - Importer Vinification/Aging: "Fermentation in steel tanks lasting 11 to 12 days. Pumping over the cap is done for the first 2 days. In a mix of Allier and Slavonian casks for 39 months. It becomes an official Brunello after 5 years, which includes the 6 months of rest in bottle." - Importer This wine was also rated 89 Points by the Wine Enthusiast.
