Abbadia Ardenga Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2013

A beautiful ruby red verging on garnet with an ethereal bouquet with scents of plum jam and hints of vanilla and spices. Intense and complex, its bouquet changes many times in the glass, sip after sip. Good structure with nice tannins and fine aromas. Warm, robust and persistent.
Top tips: Better to decant or open up the bottles a few hours before drinking.

100% Sangiovese Grosso grapes. The vineyards on the Abbadia Ardenga estate situated on the Sienese slope of the hill of Montalcino with South-west exposure. The grapes are hand-picked in early October and fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. Followed by maturing period of 36 months in Slavonian oak barrels, 18 months in stainless steel tanks and finally 18 months in the bottle.



This opens with aromas evoking forest floor, rose, new leather and wild berry. The fresh, linear palate offers prune, chopped celery and tobacco accompanied by bright acidity and dusty, rather fleeting tannins that leave a somewhat drying finish.
