Wine information

The Brunello di Montalcino Riserva comes from the vineyards of Podere Brizio a few kilometres southwest of Montalcino. The vineyards are situated on marl and limestone as well as on sandy and clayey soils of maritime origin. The Brunello is 100 % a Sangiovese Grosso, certified organic since 2015. The fermentation was spontaneous. The wine was aged classically for 48 months in 5.4-hl Slavonian oak barrels. This was followed by maturation in the bottle.

Nose

The Podere Brizio Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2015 The bouquet is powerful and ethereal at the same time. The wine is reminiscent of dried mint and other herbs, dried violet flowers and undergrowth, some cedar and the fruit of ripe and partly crushed wild strawberries. Added to this is a hint of Amaro with blood oranges along with the rubbing. The Riserva is transparent, clear and elegant.

Palate

On the palate, this elegant transparency prevails. The wine has power and depth, but also seems ethereal, fragrant and herbal. The maturation in large Botti has done him good. One can concentrate on the finesse that the Brunello without a doubt. It shines with a clear acid structure and a polished tannin. Everything seems silky and, despite its youth and power, easy-drinking and inviting. Ideally, one gives the Riserva plenty of air to open up even further and show the melange of dried cherries, wild strawberries, grilled herbs and blossoms in all its breadth.
