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.
Grape variety: Sangiovese Grosso – Brunello
Location af vineyards: hillside at 270-320 metres
Training system: spurred cordon, average age of vines 25 years.
Cultivation practices: intense pruning, production limited to very few bunches per plant, harvested by hand and selection of grapes on selection table.
Vinification: soft pressing of grapes, temperature-controlled fermentation (30°C) macro-oxygenation and maceration (15 days), racking twice a year, slow continuous flow bottling in sterilized conditions.
Ageing: 5 years: four of which are in 50-100hl Slavonian oak barrels.
Bottle ageing: 12 months before release.
Colour: ruby red tending to garnet.
Flavour: dry, warm, velvety, harmonious, steady body and character.
Aroma: evolved that crumbles into shades of Parma violet and gladiolus, likens the humble fruits of the forest floor.
Food pairing: red meats, preferably wild game; to serve, store sideways at room temperature at least 24 hours beforehand, cork two hours in advance, decant and serve in decanter.
