Brunello di Montalcino
Free Shipping on 4 or more

***64% OFF!***
 
Though this exceptional wine comes from the smallest of the Tenuta Folonari properties, it is one of the most prestigious properties in Brunello di Montalcino! Well-polished and highly acidic, this wine's berry and leather notes match perfectly with a variety of aged cheeses. At this price, how can you possibly resist!

"The 2008 harvest was “a double-sided coin.” Early in the season (from blooming to flowering, or April-June) there was a rainy, cold climate, which caused some problems for fruit set. Thinned-out clusters had resistance to maladies, but also had lower production per vine." ~Spalletti

Spalletti Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2008
 
 
By Spalletti
Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2008
 
Winemaker Notes
Spalletti Brunello is in the region of Montalcino, whose borders delineate the zone of Brunello di Montalcino DOCG. The vineyards are situated at 400 meters in elevation southwest of the town of Montalcino. The region’s vineyards are sheltered by Mount Amiata and kept dry by sea breezes from across the hills to the west. Densely planted vineyards produce low average yields, allowing wines with concentration, complexity and considerable aging potential. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature, then the wine is macerated in steel vats before malolactic fermentation takes place. The wine is aged in large Slavonian oak casks and in bottle before release. 
 
Harvest Notes
The 2008 harvest was “a double-sided coin.” Early in the season (from blooming to flowering, or April-June) there was a rainy, cold climate, which caused some problems for fruit set. Thinned-out clusters had resistance to maladies, but also had lower production per vine. Intense spring rain was followed by 3 months of drought. Temperatures were never hot but exceeded the average. Water reserves rapidly ran out and vines showed some stress. Ripening was slow and difficult, particularly with polyphenol levels, and per-vine yields were lower. The harvest was interrupted a few days by rain, which helped ripening of the grapes. With greater complexity, color and acidity, the grapes gave the wines freshness. Yields were 20% lower than the year before. In general, 2008 is a good vintage. The wines have intense color, well-developed tannins and exceptional acidity.
 
Tasting Notes
The wine shows intense red berry aromas with leather notes on the nose and palate. The wine is full-bodied with high acidity, polished tannins and a long finish.
 
Food Pairing 
Pairs well with all types of meat, game and hard, aged cheeses.
 
Points of Distinction
A Brunello of considerable aging potential. Matured for a total of 4 years in cask and bottle before release.
