Piancornello

Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

Tasting Notes

Ruby red color with hues of brick red. A characteristic bouquet, bold and austere, with notes of red fruits on a spicy, ethereal background. The taste is full-bodied, enveloping and persistent.


Cultivation

A classic style Brunello di Montalcino from the southern slopes of this great appellation. In fact, Piancornello is located just outside of the town of Sant’Angelo in Colle, an area considered to be among the finest for the production of Brunello. Spurred cordon.


Vinification

30 days of alcoholic fermentation and maceration in steel tanks and in wood, at a controlled temperature of 28-30 °C. Pumping over 2-3 times per day. After racking, the wine completes its malolactic fermentation in barriques and tonneaux.


Aging

A minimum aging of 24 months in oak barrels is followed by at least 6 months of aging in bottles. Total minimum aging requirement of 6 years after harvest.
