Fattoria La Fiorita Brunello di Montalcino 2007

Fattoria La Fiorita Brunello di Montalcino 750ml 2007     
Sku: 52198

 Wine Advocate 88 points (Apr 2012)
The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino is a big wine bursting with huge dark fruit and equally powerful tannins. Forward notes in the bouquet and the wine’s chunky personality make me think it is best enjoyed over the medium term. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022

Technical notes
Our vineyards are cultivated in the spurred cordon way and the density is of 7.000 plants per hectare; the yields are at a maximum of 800 g of grapes each plant. The harvest is generally during the third decade of September. The fermentation-maceration takes place in slavonian oak fermentation vats were the must reaches a maximum temperature of 30C. The period of contact between must and grape-skins is almost never longer than 15 days, during which we do pumping-over and delestage. We use selected yeasts not intrusive to the personality of the territory; the 24 months wood ageing period takes place in 5 hl French oak tonneaux and also in slavonian oak vats. The remaining period before the release of the wine is spent in bottle. The annual production is of about 20.000 bottles
