Castiglion del Bosco / 2011 Rosso di Montalcino.

Country/Region: Italy/Tuscany.

ABV: 14.5%

Unit: 1 x 75cl Bottle.

Production Area: Brunello di Montalcino Castiglion del Bosco comes from a careful selection of grapes from vineyards located in the Capanna area of the estate.

Type of Soil: The Capanna vineyards lie at an altitude of 350 m above sea level facing south. The soil is characterized by the predominant presence of “galestro” stones with layers of clay and sandstone, a terroir which is ideally suited to the production of Sangiovese. In this area the influence of the sea is strongly felt, with hot, dry summers and constant winds that remove moisture.

Grapes: 100% Sangiovese.

Vineyard: Density of 4,500 plants per hectare. The average annual yield is 40 hl per hectare, with an average production of 60 quintals per hectare.

Vinification: The grapes are hand harvested and transported to the winery in small 20kg crates. Careful hand selection of the cluster and grapes is carried out before pressing. The wine vats are filled by gravity alone, without resorting to mechanical pumps. Alcoholic fermentation lasts for 18 days at a constant temperature of 28° C.

Maturation and aging: After malolactic fermentation, the Brunello di Montalcino is transferred to French oak barriques (30% new oak barrels, 70% first and second passage barriques). Aging lasts for two years, as laid down by the Brunello regulations. The full maturation of this complex wine requires further long bottle aging (24 months) before release on the market.

Tasting Notes: The colour is ruby red with garnet overtones; the nose is broad and determined with typical varietal aromas. In the mouth it is harmonious and persistent.

Delivery: All our wines are stored in our importers bonded warehouse’s, which have the optimum environment for fine wine storage, by carefully regulating temperature, humidity and other microclimatic factors.

As such, please allow between 7 and 10 days for your delivery to arrive.
