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 »

  • Castello Banfi 2003

    Snoothrank:

    For the price I paid, I expected a bit more than what I got. Overall, a very good wine, but not as good as others I have had in this price range. Hints of oak and cherry with good tannins. A little dryer than I was expecting, but still, a very good wine. Read More

  • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2003

    Snoothrank:

    Tasted this at the Winery in June 2009. Not quite as good as the Reserva of the same vintage in my judgement, but exceptional regardless. While the tannins are handled well, I expect improvement on the remaining bottles I have with some time in the cellar Read More
