The grapes for Brunello 2011 come from both the vineyard named Deserti, in the area of Torrenieri - which is located northeast of Montalcino village - and from a selection of Rennina and Sugarille vineyards that surround the church of Santa Restituta - southwest of Montalcino village. Deserti vineyard has a northwest and southwest exposures, and its soil is a well-balanced mix of sand, clay and tuff. The area is windy and characterized by significant night-and-day temperature variation. The 2011 Brunello opens with a bouquet of wildflowers and red berries, followed by fresh balsamic notes, notably sweet liquorice and thyme. The palate is very clean, with flavours of fresh plum and red cherry, well integrated wood aromas and silky tannins.
The 2011 is complex and refined with dark cherry aromas intermingled with notes of dried summer fruits and wild flowers. The palate is smooth and satisfying with refreshing...
red plum and bight cherry fruit flavours balanced by seamless tannins and refreshing acidity. Attractive and very classic in its style, this wine will be delicious to drink over the next few years but will age well for at least a decade.
