Product Description:

"A plump and juicy Brunello with bold, fresh fruit and loads of aromatic intensity. Cherry, plum and blackberry are backed by evolved tones of leather, spice and cola. Shows delicate details of wild berry and almond paste on the close. Smooth and velvety. It will be the perfect accompaniment to roasts, grilled meats, game, and aged cheeses.

The “Tenimenti Ricci” Estate located in Sant’Angelo is one of the older and more traditional rural establishments in this area of Brunello production. Ferruccio Ricci and his sister Ida, who manage the estate, are deeply rooted in family traditions and Montalcinese wine making, with a modern and youthful approach. The cellar has been recently restored and equipped with temperature conditioning rooms. There, the wine is made, aged in barrels made of Slovanian oak and then bottled. The vineyards cover about 12 hectares concentrating on the Sangiovese grape, planted in a privileged position on the land." - Importer
