Dry, warm, well-textured with a lingering bouquet of liquorice, raspberries and vanilla The Carpineto wine making style produces wines that are full-bodied, complex and fruity in character, with a round, supple tannin structure and a long, persistent finish. The D.O.C. and D.O.C.G. wines are terroir wines with flavours true to their appellation, which strike a balance between tradition and innovation. The Brunello di Montalcino is one of Italy s most important and prestigious wines. The grapes are grown on the hillside vineyards surrounding the ancient town of Montalcino near Siena. Grapes: 100% Sangiovese Region: Italy / Tuscany / Brunello de Montalcino DOCGMaker: Giovanni Carlo SacchetNotes: Dry, warm, and well-textured with a lingering bouquet reminiscent of liquorice, raspberries and vanilla through to a firm and lingering finish.Serve: At 18c, decanting before pouring, with roast and grilled meats, wild game and mature cheese.ABV: 14%

Tasting Notes:

A decisive and complex bouquet of nuts and spice is accented by hints of vanilla, cherry, and raspberry. On the palate, it is warm and smooth with a long, persistent finish. With proper storage, this wine will reward extensive cellaring. It is not uncommon for a high-quality vintage to age for 50 years or more.

A highly-selective manual harvest was carried out in October. Fermentation and maceration took place in stainless steel tanks over 10-15 days at 25-30°C with frequent pump-overs. Malolactic fermentation occurred as well. The wine was aged in a combination of previously-used French and American oak barriques for 6 years. Filtered then bottled and cellared for an additional year prior to release.
