Abbadia Ardenga Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2017
Abbadia Ardenga Brunello di Montalcino DOCG has a very traditional Tuscany taste. Ruby red colour that verges on garnet. Opens with ample aromas of wild berries, violets and leather. Rich cherry and marinated prune flavours meet layers of liquorice, scorched earth and vanilla. The full-bodied palate is at once approachable and intense, harmoniously balancing complex flavours and velvety tannins.
100% Sangiovese Grosso. The fruit comes from South-west facing vineyards on the Abbadia Ardenga estate, which is situated on the Sienese slope of the Montalcino hill.
Handpicking of the grapes in early October. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks for 18 days. The wine ages for 36 months in 36 months in Slavonian oak barrels, 12 months in stainless steel tanks and finally 12 months in the bottle.
