90 Plus Cellars Brunello di Montalcino
Brunello di Montalcino is one of Italy’s most famous wines. In the Tuscan town of Montalcino, vineyards of Sangiovese spread out in every direction from the medieval hilltop city. The grape bunches ripen under the warm Tuscan sun, periodically cooled by breezes drifting through the Orcia Valley.
Made from 100% Sangiovese, this wine comes from the highly regarded 2015 vintage. Grape bunches are hand-harvested and sorted before a two week fermentation. After which, the wine matures for 30 months in large barrels made of Slavonian oak.
Notes of toffee, plump raisins and charred wood fill the nose with a touch of sweet spice. On the palate the wine gushes with dried blackberries and violets ending with a hint of toasted nutmeg. This is a wine of restrained power and unmistakable finesse that is made to last.
