MONTE-CHIARO Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2015
This wine is the fruit of the collaboration with a small family owned winery, very close to the Biondi Santi "Il Greppo". The cellar is located along the road that connects Montalcino to the magnificent Sant'Antimo Abbey in Castelnuovo dell'Abate. Montalcino owes almost everything to it´s forest including the name "Monte Ilcinus" (Mount Ilcinus) and its coat of arms (a holm oak on six reddish mountains). The name is mentioned in the manuscript as sub Mont Lucinii in 814, Montalcino in 1181 and Monte Ilcino in 1214.
Tasting notes: Enticing scents suggesting wild red berry, forest floor, rose and a whiff of new leather delicately waft out of the glass. It's ethereal, displaying sour cherry, pomegranate and a hint of white pepper set against racy acidity and taut, refined tannins. Some may find this soft and delicate but if you like wines with finesse and restraint, you'll love it once it reaches full maturity. Drink after 2023.
