"A beautiful follow up to the outstanding regular bottling of 2010. This riserva shows density and richness with lots of ripe tannins. Very long and persistent. Better in 2019."

Product Description:

"It’s origins begin with the Sangiovese Grosso, a robust and generous grape type. It’s attributes are expressed in time: a period of aging in oak vats and a lengthy period of fining in the bottle. Brunello di Montalcino has a distinctive intense ruby red colour, tending to garnet with age, with notable scents of rich fruit and spices;on the palate the taste is uniquely characteristic of Montalcino.

A superbe wine to accompany roasted red meats - it is suggested that the bottle, depending on the vintage, be opened several hours before serving." - Winery
