Uggiano Brunello di Montalcino DOCG

2015

In a Nutshell

Excellent 'entry level' Brunello - muscular and richly-flavoured as Brunello should be.

Tasting Notes

Warm and ripe on the nose with black fruits, savoury, meaty characters, mocha and spice. The palate has ripe black plum and sweet spice characters with notes of toasty oak. The firm structure is balanced by the richness and intensity of the fruit, and vibrant acidity gives a sustained and balanced finish.

Production Notes

After crushing, grapes undergo temperature-controlled fermention in stainless steel tanks using selected yeasts. The must is pumped over the skins twice a day to extract colour and tannin. After 18-22 days the wine is racked to large Slavonian oak casks, where it matures for the next 36 months.
