Brunello Di Montalcino Wine

Brunello di Montalcino D.O.C.G. is one of the most prestigious wines in Italy. D.O.C.G. stands for Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita. These letters are on the pink collar strip on each bottle of Brunello di Montalcino. The D.O.C.G., as a category, was created in 1980 and, out of hundreds of Italian wines, there are just 45 D.O.C.G.s in all of Italy. It is an elite and exclusive category of wine with many rules and regulations, including panel tastings for quality and maximum yields. Brunello can only be made from 100% Sangiovese, known in Montalcino as Brunello, grown on authorised vineyards. There are minimum and maximum altitudes for vine cultivation and there has actually been a freeze on authorisations since 1995. The maximum yield per hectare is 7.000 kg of grapes (the conversion to wine is 68%). The wine must spend 2 years in wood and cannot be released until the fifth January after harvest – so 2004 is on sale in 2009, 2005 in 2010 and so on and so forth. One of the DOCG Read more »

    Wine review by skibbi9


  • Why buy a wine of the magnitude of the Valdicava Brunello di Montalcino 2001 in the first place? It wasn’t to impress anyone. After having sent in my book manuscript to the publisher on Monday, I figured that my wife and I simply needed a treat….a private tasting of this wine. My 2001 Valdicava Brunello was saturated with deep red near-black col...

  • Great aromas, of leather and saddlebag. Firm tannins almost chalky and will need time to soften. Good balance and mild acidity. Behind the 2001, this one is more deep and will offer more with some cellar age Read More
