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: 1997 A slightly late budding was recovered before the summer. A severe frost in April (the first in 15 years) seriously reduced the quantities, leading to a very early harvest with very high gradations. 1997 Is considered a good vintage for investments mainly for the fact that there are few bottles available in the market.
