Brunello di Montalcino DOCG can be produced exclusively from Sangiovese grapes and must be bottled on "Bordolese" type bottles, with dark glass and closed by a cork stopper. It is a wine that supports time very well and if properly stored (fresh wine cellar, poor light, constant temperature, no odors) it can last even 20 or more years.This vintage shows a bright, ruby red. Lively, fresh fruit notes of cherry and red currants mixed with sweet spices. Full-bodied and soft with ripe fruit flavors and a long finish. A versatile wine that pairs well with light fare, white meats and heavy pastas.
