BRAMANTE RISERVA Brunello di Montalcino D.O.C.G.

produced with grapes from organic agriculture

The Riserva di Brunello di Montalcino Bramante only comes in exceptional years from a selection of the best grapes.

Aged for more than three years in medium-sized wooden casks, it is bottled in its fourth year and left to rest in the bottle until the January of the sixth year after it is harvested.

Description of the year 2016

Year 2016 good and abundant!! Started with the best auspices of a hot March and April that made the screws revive two weeks in advance. Fresh and rainy May and June have restored the right balance for a bloom that started at the right time of late May. July and August warm but not too much allowed a good grape vortex and the picking started in early August brought the grapes to a very advanced stage already at the end of the month. A balanced September allowed the right evolution of the clusters that were harvested on October 4 and 5.

Grape: 100% Sangiovese

Harvest: the slightly late harvest of these grapes results in a very fruity wine with significant body. The grapes are harvested by hand.

Vinification: in the cantina, after a light pressing of the bunches, fermentation takes place for 25 days in steel vats at controlled temperatures, where the wine is subject to periodic pumping up and dèlastage.

Aging: the wine is refined together with the lees, in vats that have an average capacity of 10 hectolitres sothat an optimum equilibrium is achieved. Before being placed on the market the wine undergoes an ulterior 4-month refinement in the bottle.

Characteristics: dark garnet red, with a generous nose, it has aromas of dried flowers, spices, and ripe fruits. It finishes long.

Combinations: A very good accompaniment for game, beef, and seasoned pecorino cheese.
