Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2010

Tenuta La Fuga

Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2010 play

Region: Italy / Tuscany / Montalcino
Grapes: 100% Brunello

Montalcino’s vineyards are sheltered by Mount Amiata and kept dry by sea breezes from across the hills to the west. Densely planted vineyards produce low average yields, allowing wines with concentration, complexity and considerable aging potential. Fermentation took place in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature. Maceration lasted about 15 days in steel vats before malolactic fermentation in oak barrels. The wine was aged in large Slovenian oak casks for three years and then one year in bottle before release.
