Brunello di Montalcino Palazzo Communale 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

The Cantina di Montalcino was founded in 1975 and was then acquired by Cantine Leonardo da Vinci in 1990. There are ninety associate growers whose combined vineyards cover 108 hectares. The vineyards are located in a hilly area in the commune of Montalcino. The grape growers belong to the Cantina di Montalcino, near Siena. Good depth of ruby red colour, with perfumes of liquorice and blackberry. On the palate it has a gamey, liquorice fruit characteristic of Brunello. Excellent weight with rounded tannins and nicely developed plummy fruit. It finishes long, with appealing, spicy complexity.
