Brunello di Montalcino RISERVA GLI ANGELI DOCG

This is the signature wine of the estate, obtained from the vinification of the best grapes coming from our emblematic vineyard, Vigna gli Angeli (Vineyard of the Angels), which was first planted at Colombaio in 1976. The selection of the grapes is severe and drastic. The end result is an extremely complex wine, both in aromas where spicy notes and tobacco prevail, as well as in the very unique tannic texture.

This wine is only produced for exceptional vintages and is destined for long ageing.
