F.A.Q.


  • What are the characteristics of Montalcino wine?



Montalcino wine primarily refers to Brunello di Montalcino, a renowned Italian red wine made from Sangiovese grapes grown in the Montalcino region of Tuscany. Here are some key characteristics of Brunello di Montalcino:

Grape Variety: Brunello di Montalcino is made exclusively from Sangiovese grapes, specifically a clone known locally as Sangiovese Grosso or Brunello. This grape variety contributes to the wine's distinctive flavor profile.

Climate and Terroir: The Montalcino region enjoys a Mediterranean climate with warm, dry summers and cool winters. The vineyards are situated at varying elevations, which, combined with diverse soil types, contribute to the complexity of Brunello di Montalcino wines. The terroir of the region, characterized by clay-rich soils, plays a significant role in shaping the wine's character.

Aging Process: Brunello di Montalcino wines are required by law to be aged for a minimum of four years, with at least two years spent in oak barrels. Some producers age their wines for even longer periods, resulting in more complex and nuanced flavors. Additionally, Brunello di Montalcino must undergo at least four months of bottle aging before release.

Flavor Profile: Brunello di Montalcino is known for its rich and complex flavor profile. It typically exhibits aromas of dark cherry, red berries, plum, and floral notes, with hints of spice, earth, tobacco, and leather. The wine is full-bodied with firm tannins, high acidity, and a long, lingering finish.

Ageability: Brunello di Montalcino is renowned for its aging potential. Well-made Brunello wines can age gracefully for decades, developing greater depth and complexity over time. Many wine enthusiasts consider aged Brunello di Montalcino to be among Italy's finest expressions of Sangiovese.

Overall, Brunello di Montalcino wines are prized for their elegance, structure, and ability to reflect the unique terroir of the Montalcino region, making them highly sought after by collectors and wine enthusiasts worldwide.
