Brunello is defined both “The King” or “The Gold of Tuscany”, but, beyond its definitions, it is without a doubt the absolute protagonist of the wine production in this region. The quality of Brunello di Montalcino is the result of the passion and experience of the producers who carry out a meticulous, manual work in the vineyard: from pruning to choosing the most suitable shoot, from containing vegetation to thinning out the bunches, allowing only the best grapes to ripen and be harvested. The only grape variety allowed for the production of Brunello di Montalcino DOCG is Sangiovese, usually giving wines a strong taste and a predisposition to long aging. The disciplinary, in fact, speaks of an aging of at least two years in oak and an allowance to marketing after 5 years from the harvest for the standard Brunello and after 6 years for the Brunello Riserva. Brunello is a wine that is limpid and of a lively garnet color, it has an intense and persistent scent where it is possible to recognize hints of undergrowth, wood and composite jam with a strong, elegant, harmonious and dry taste. It goes well with red meats, game, mushrooms, truffles and mature sheep cheeses. Brunello is an excellent conversation wine. However, Montalcino is not only the kingdom of Brunello, but also of other types of wine that you will have the opportunity to taste. The Rosso di Montalcino DOC, also made with Sangiovese grapes, has a less intense taste than its older brother and, being also less aged, is certainly a more daily, fresher and fruity wine. The Sant’Antantimo is another type of wine of the territory whose production is also regulated. The Sant’Antantimo rosso is made with Sangiovese, Cabernet, Merlot and Pinot Nero grapes while for the white Sant’Antantimo we use Chardonnay, Sauvignon and Pinot Grigio.
