"Perhaps it was by coincidence or by a curious sign of fate, in 1983, Cosimo Loia bought the estate "Palace", which bore the same family name of his wife Antoinette. A picturesque farm located in the south-east of Montalcino at an altitude of 320 meters above sea level, consisting of twelve acres of property. Here, the couple found a plot of Eocene origin, arid and rocky, particularly suited to the cultivation of the vine. Settling in this idyllic spot, so pursued their dream of living in Montalcino and produce one of the world's best wines, Brunello.
Produced only in the best years with very selected grapes and with 12 months of additional ageing in French oak tonneaux (500 litres).
It has a vivid ruby red colour, an ample and complex nose, revealing important balsamic and undergrowth notes, sage, rosemary, hints of small red fruits and subtle toasted notes. Full-bodied and well-structured, with an intense and persistent flavour, it has a fine balance between acidity and minerality and a very seductive tannic finish.
This is the Brunello for special occasions.
It is the perfect accompaniment to roast Chianina beef, Florentine T-bone steak, game stews, but also first courses with game ragout are a natural accompaniment to this wine, which requires equally noble flavours. A wine for meditation." -Winery
