Brunello di Montalcino wine

The ancient city of Montalcino

Brunello di Montalcino is one of Italy's most prestigious wines. It's made from pure Sangiovese, and its grapes are grown in one of Italy's hottest and driest DOCG areas. Such tough natural conditions create grapes with a highly concentrated flavour and powerful aroma. This is what makes the wine so famous.

Brunello di Montalcino must be aged for a minimum of four years, with two of those spent in oak. The more prestigious Riserva is aged for five years. If you want the Brunello experience without the price tag, look for Rosso di Montalcino. It’s made in a similar way, but released a year earlier.

What does Brunello di Montalcino taste like? Complex and interesting flavours make this wine a perfect choice for ageing. Often you'll find notes of juicy wild strawberry, rich espresso and delicate violet flower all in the same glass.
