Description

A September with big temperature swings yielded a complete grape

A September with big temperature swings yielded a complete grape that we transformed into a marvelously structured Brunello with great earthiness and minerality, the distinctive characteristics of Castelnuovo dell’Abate.

Aging: 36 months in Allier oak barrels. Bottle aging for a minimum of 6 months in the cellar.

Tasting Notes: Clear and intense ruby red with pale garnet highlights. Subtle vanilla blends with spices and a note of tobacco leaf. Entry on the palate is pervasive and leisurely with good length. There is a generous mid-palate and an intriguingly tangy finish. Pair with grilled meats and mature cheeses.
