Brunello di Montalcino


Castiglion del Bosco is one of the most prominent producers in Montalcino, both for the history of the estate and for its size, unchanged in the last 400 years. In 1967, when Consorzio del Brunello di Montalcino was born, Castiglion del Bosco was one of its seven founding members. As Castiglion del Bosco's most representative wine, Brunello di Montalcino is an example of the Sangiovese grape's perfect symbiosis with the terroir of Montalcino. Brunello di Montalcino Castiglion del Bosco comes from a careful selection of grapes from vineyards located in the Capanna area of the estate. The Capanna vineyards lie at an altitude of 350 m above sea level facing south. The soil is characterized by the predominant presence of "galestro" stones with layers of clay and sandstone, a terroir which is ideally suited to the production of Sangiovese. The influences of the sea are felt in this area with hot, dry summers and constant winds that remove moisture. The richness of the "galestro" stone in the soil gives the wine its unique aroma, complexity and structure. The stainless wine vats are filled by gravity alone, without resorting to mechanical pumps. Alcoholic fermentation lasts for 18 days at a constant temperature of 28°C. After malolactic fermentation, the Brunello di Montalcino is transferred to French oak barriques (30% new oak barrels, 70% first and second passage barriques). Wood aging lasts for two years, as laid down by the Brunello regulations. The full maturation of this complex wine requires a further, long bottle aging (24 months) before release on the market. The color is ruby red with garnet overtones, the nose is broad and determined with typical varietal aromas. In the mouth it is harmonious and persistent. The grapes are hand harvested and transported to the winery in small 20 Kg crates. Careful hand selection of the cluster and grapes is carried out before pressing. Excellent with stews, roasted meats and cheese.
