Information

The fruit of this Brunello di Montalcino comes from the 1.5 hectare Vigna della Sorgente, located at 450 metres above sea level and characterised by heavy clayey and sandy as well as stony Galestro soils. For a long time the fruit of the Sorgente especially for the Rosso used. But the slightly later ripeness ensured an upgrade of the vineyard. The berries were fermented spontaneously at up to 28 °C and then gently pressed. The wine was aged for three years in barrels of ten and 20 hl. It was then bottled unfiltered and stored in the bottle for another twelve months.

bright garnet red

Nose

Salicutti's Sorgente 2017 is an initially dark-sounding, reminiscent of sable and stone. BrunelloBut with air, it quickly becomes a charmer. Then it literally blossoms, showing notes of violets and roses, cherries and dark raspberries, even some cassis and cinnamon. The stony mineral note retreats into the background, but remains present.

Palate

On the palate the Sorgente Brunello di Montalcino absolutely precise, juicy, inviting and yet lean and fresh, and that in a hot year like 2017. The vintage means that the wine can already be drunk wonderfully with a little air in the decanter. The tannin is elegant, fine-grained and ripe, the wine silky, almost creamy and full of energy. This is especially evident in the long finish, in which the Brunello turns up once more, showing presence and a cool note of stone, mint and blood orange.
