Brunello di Montalcino

Details

Tenute Silvio Nardi’s classic Brunello is a blend of the finest grapes from the Manachiara and Casale del Bosco estates. Silvio Nardi follows the strict DOCG laws required of a classified Brunello di Montalcino. Yield is limited; only the top 70% of the grapes is used to make the wine. The fruit is carefully handpicked and sorted. Fermentation and maceration takes at least 24 days (varies with parcel) at controlled temperature of less than 30°C. Aged for 12 months in new and used French oak barriques (Allier) before 18 months in large Slavonian oak barrels. Bottle aged at least 12 months before release. The harvest was “a double-sided coin.” Early in the season (from blooming to flowering, or April-June) there was a rainy, cold climate, which caused some problems for fruit set. Thinned-out clusters had resistance to maladies, but also had lower production per vine. Intense spring rain was followed by 3 months of drought. Temperatures were never hot but exceeded the average. Water reserves rapidly ran out and vines showed some stress. Ripening was slow and difficult, particularly with polyphenol levels, and per-vine yields were lower. The harvest was interrupted a few days by rain, which helped ripening of the grapes. With greater complexity, color and acidity, the grapes gave the wines freshness. Yields were 20% lower than the year before. In general, this is a good vintage. The wines have intense color, well-developed tannins and exceptional acidity. This deep, ruby-red wine has intense, complex aromas of red fruits and spices, with toasty oak notes. The wine shows a silky texture, great finesse and profound flavors, framed by noble, velvety tannins. Though impressive now, this wine will benefit from aging. Pair with thick porterhouse steak or rich fish such as sturgeon or grouper.
