Riserva Poggio al Vento
Denomination: Brunello di Montalcino DOCG
Production area: Montalcino (Siena)
Average altitude: 350 m a.s.l.
Vineyard: Poggio al Vento. Average height: 350 m above sea level. Planted in 1974.
Grapes: Sangiovese, particular clones selected by Col d’Orcia.
Weather conditions: vintage characterized by the rough frost of April 16th, which drastically reduced quantities luckily to the advantage of quality. A wave of heat on the last week of July and the first of August considerably anticipated harvest.
Vinification: fermentation at a controlled temperature below 30°C. 25 days of maceration in wide and short stainless steel tanks (greater contact between skins and must with a better polyphenolic extraction), daily punching down in the morning, and pumping over in the evening.
Aging: 4 years in Slavonian and French oak casks, followed by over 2 years of refinement in the bottle, all of this in a conditioned environment.
Alcoholic strength: 14% vol.
Serving temperature: 18 °
Colour: deep and dense 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: a unique combination of power and elegance. Structure with important but delicate tannins. It lingers on the palate with a panoply of small and pleasant sensations.
