Rosso di Montalcino
Five stars, the top, but it deserved seven, just like the new extra luxury hotels. The harvest went perfectly, like the one all grape growers dream of. An easy harvest too: the soil was well hydrated, sunshine at the right time and a final vegetative phase characterized by an accelerated maturation. The bush of leaves had aged to soon and so we had vines with grapes not completely changed in colour, from green to blue, and with autumnal leaves. It is something which is very positive in truth but also very rare. The acceleration in the biological processes took place in fact both in the leaves and in the grape skins. This permitted the production of wine rich in poliphenols and polymerized tannins . In other words wines with an effect of fullness, power and softness which are the distinctive traits of the great red wines. The 2010 Sangiovese grapes from Montalcino gave wonderfully young red wines and great reds destined to last one hundred years, magic that only Brunello land can do!
