REGION: Brunello di Montalcino DOCG – Toscana
GRAPES: 100% Sangiovese
SOIL TYPE: Sand and clay with good presence of rocks.
WINEMAKING: The Winery Marchesato degli Aleramici , established in 1986, near Siena, in Montalcino town where you will find our estate “Il Galampio”. Situated in the locality known as “Pian delle Vigne” this ancient farm is located on a gentle slope that descends from the state forest down towards the Ombrone river. The Brunello is refined over 48 months in barrels. The resulting wine is truly one of Italian’s greatest.
FOOD PAIRINGS: Brunello is ideal to be enjoyed alonside meat dishes, lamb, duck, game and strong cheeses such as parmesan, pecorino. It is recommended to uncork the bottle a few hours before consumption and serve at temperature between 18°C and 20°C.
VINTAGE: 1995 The seasonal trend that characterized this vintage was quite irregular with cooler summer temperatures than the ten-year average and well-distributed rainfall throughout the growing season. This caused on the one hand a slight delay of maturation of about a week, on the other the maintenance of a higher natural acidity than normal thus improving the primary aromatic patrimony.
During the harvest, a careful selection of the grapes took place, an operation also facilitated by the very hot and dry climate, which allowed to bring excellent quality grapes to the cellar.
