2016 Brunello A.D. 1441

Case of 6 bottles 

Varietals: 100% Sangiovese Grosso

Vinification/Ageing: Natural fermentation with indigenous yeast. Long maceration on the skins in steel vat for 65 days. 40 months ageing in large Slovenian oak casks with an additional 9 month minimum in bottle before release.

Alcohol: 14%

Description: Deep ruby with a complex and intense nose of red fruit and black pepper. Full bodied with great tannic structure and acidity, on a long mineral finish. Only for the best vintages does the estate decide to release the Anno Domini 1441 instead of the Brunello di Montalcino Riserva. 14 comes from the number of angels in the Catholic religion. 

93 Points, Wine Mag: "Eucalyptus, red-skinned berry and tobacco aromas are front and center. The savory, youthful palate offers juicy red cherry, nutmeg and licorice alongside fine-grained tannins. It's balanced, with fresh acidity. Drink 2024–2035."
