Riserva Poggio al Vento
Denomination: Brunello di Montalcino DOCG
Production area: Montalcino (Siena)
Average altitude: 300 m a.s.l.
Grapes: Sangiovese, particular clones selected by Col d’Orcia.
Weather conditions: favorable weather conditions and adequate rainfall throughout the spring, relatively low temperatures in August. Perfect conditions at harvest time, which took place later than previous years. The grapes, perfectly mature, gave excellent results in vinification.
Vinification: fermentation at controlled temperatures below 30° C. 25 days of maceration in wide and shout inox steel tanks (greater contact between skins and must with a better polyphenolic extraction), punch down was done daily in the morning, pumping over in the afternoon.
Aging: in Slavonian and French oak casks for 4 years, then followed by 18 months of refinement in the bottle (all in an air-conditioned environment).
Alcoholic strength: 14,3% vol.
Serving temperature: 18 °
Colour: very deep ruby red with light garnet hues.
Bouquet: the primary fruit is wide and deep, framed with great elegance by gentle spices from oak. Hints of goudron, licorice, mushrooms, and chocolate give even more complexity.
Taste: an overwhelming attack by structure, body, and power. It frees all the tastes previously detected on the bouquet, leading into a soft and caressing aftertaste.
