Ridolfi Brunello di Montalcino 2015
Ridolfi Brunello di Montalcino has a bright ruby red colour and clear aroma of dark berries, cherries and subtle hints of violet, sweet spices and balsamic ending. On the palate, it has an elegant and rich texture that is perfectly balanced with lively acidity and sweet, refined tannins. The finish is long persistence with minerality.
The Ridolfi Brunello di Montalcino has a pale ruby colour with garnet reflections. There is a supple red fruit expression on the nose, with light incense notes following on the palate and a gentle savoury drive. The lively acidity is in perfect balance with sweet and refined tannins. The Ridolfi Brunello di Montalcino has a long mineral and salty finish.
100% Sangiovese, hand-harvested between late September and early October. The vineyards are on the northeast side of Montalcino Hill, 300m above sea level. Medium texture soils rich in clay, marine fossils and in the highest part, Alberese (weathered sandstone).
The vineyard cultivated follows the organic agriculture principles. Sexual confusion method is used to prevent the spreading of the vine moth. Organic humus, sowing and green manure are used to improve the soil quality.

Spice, hot stone, plum and cherry aromas follow through to a medium to full body, dense fruit and ripe and round tannins. Lots of white pepper and spice with ripe fruit. Needs two or three years to come completely together, but already beautiful. Try after 2021
