Brunello di Montalcino D.O.C.G.

produced with grapes from organic agriculture

Sanlorenzo’s finest grapes are devoted to a very fine Brunello di Montalcino, the result is a perfect combination of terroir, vineyard and winemaking.

It is an incredibly elegant and intense wine, able to express itself at its best over time.

Description of the year 2004

The vintage of 2004 was distinguished by its balanced climate. The persistent spring rains were followed by summer days that were hot and sunny but interspersed with days that were cool and rainy, while September was generally dry, hot during the day and cool at night. This trend favoured fine development of the grapes and ripening that evolved in the right way up to the optimum moment for harvest. It was an excellent year for the Sanlorenzo vineyards. The harvest took place on 18 and 19 October.

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 30-35 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.
