Brunello di Montalcino, vintage 2006 is really a great wine! A “classic” summer, allowed the grapes to ripen slowly and steadily; the results are fully appreciable to your palate. An extraordinary September, essential for the Sangiovese in Montalcino, it will make a memorable harvest, not only for the professionals, but also, for all the wine lovers in the world. It is indeed an excellent wine to buy and to enjoy it immediately, because it has already the high quality to drink it now, or you can wait and “forget” it in your cellar and taste it in a later time to appreciate his even greater quality. The first impact with the alcohol component of all respect anticipates the great structure and balance of this fortunate harvest and we are sure to obtain a great success with our affectionate clientele.
