    Winemaker's Notes:

    The hand-picked grapes undergo a 36 to 48 hour cold soak to facilitate fruit and color extraction. A long, cool fermentation is carried out in temperature controlled horizontal stainless steel fermenters fitted with rotating paddles that mix the cap of skins with the fermenting juice. The resulting wines are deeper in color with rounder, richer fruit, and more velvety tannins than wines using traditional pump-over extraction. The wines are aged in large Slovenian oak uprights that allow a gentle maturation without the intrusion of wood flavors or tannins. Intense Ruby color. Velvety and mouth-filling with supple yet firm tannins.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Wonderful aromas of chocolate, crushed berries and raspberries, with vanilla and toasted oak undertones. Full-bodied, with deliciously ripe fruit and loads of berries, chocolate and coffee bean character. Love the length and beauty here. Best after 2013.

    This beautuful Brunello will charm your socks off. The wine is rich and plush, deep and concentrated, intense and ripe with personality. It offers a modern yet sneakily sophisticated nose with tones of bright cherry, almond paste and vanilla. The tannins are still a bit firm and so give it another five years of cellar aging.
