New releases Brunello di Montalcino 2016 & Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2015

The awaited 2016 give us a fascinating and particular Brunello, due to an irregular weather condition: a mild winter and a sunny April helped the vineyards growing in advance of 15 days, followed by fresh and rainy May and June, which give rehydration to the soil.
Summer was instead characterized by a balanced but not high warmth, followed by a perfect thermal excursion between day and night, increasing the maturation and sugar level in the grapes, rich in acidity, colors and parfums. An elegant, harmonious and complex Brunello, with balsamic notes, typical from the northside, already drinkable but perfect, at the same time, to be aged for a very long time. We suggest it with red meats, stews, game and seasoned cheeses.
Produced only in top quality vintages, Brunello di Montalcino DOCG Riserva 2015 is a bottle that for sure goes down in history. After an ageing process of 40 months in big Slavonian and French oak, it shows a great body, elegant, austere and persistent. Perfect to be paired with rich and tasty dishes like roasted meats, game or as a meditation wine.
Result of a perfect weather condition, 2015 was an excellent harvest, in quantity and quality, a vintage for sure to remember.
