Description

2007 was a particularly mild winter in which temperatures remained systematically above the freezing point, coupled with an equally mild spring with little rainfall led to early start to the vegetative cycle of the vine. The growth of the buds was favored by warm days followed – in regular order – by precipitation, and ripening was assisted by important temperature swings between daytime warmth and evening and nighttime coolness during the month of August. September arrived with warm and sunny days which allowed us to harvest our Sangiovese in a condition of perfect ripeness.

An intense ruby red with garnet highlights, the aromas of the Brunello Pian delle Vigne 2007 show red fruit and spices which fuse harmoniously with tobacco and chocolate. On the palate it is a wine of great balance, with lively mineral notes supported by vibrant tannins which accompany the flavours elegantly during the entire tasting sequence.
