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 »

    Snoothrank:

    Aroma notes of pansy flower box and fruits, plums, strawberries, cherries, incense and earthy tones lead an explosion of ripe fruit, tasty oak spices and expresso with a tad bit of chocolate thrown in. There are tannins, chewy but fine and well balanced acidity that delivers a long and satisfying aftertaste this last for another 5-8 years ea... Read More

  • Nice gift Al.OT, I'm going with NG as your gifter. Lucky you!I neglected to ... today. The wine is a 2008 Brunello di Montalcino, can't recall the producer but dawns a faded black label as is customary for many Brunello's with various red, blue, white, and maybe some gold text colors. Going to guess Fox was my SS as he knows I've liked Brunello... Read More

  • Hello GDP or whoever is out there. Have any of you had the Bonacchi Brunello di Montalcino 2003? I saw a bottle at Trader Joe's for $20 and decided that for that price I could take a chance. So what's the verdict: Sensational Steal or Sad Scam?
