BRUNELLO OF MONTALCINO
A red D.O.C.G wine, Brunello is made by Sangiovese grapes only grown in the area around Montalcino. Five years from the harvest, it can be called Brunello, a limpid and brilliant wine with a lively garnet colour and with an intense, persistent, full and ethereal smell. A combination of the scents of brush lands, aromatic woods, small fruits, a light trace of vanilla and fruity jams can be detected in Brunello.
Situated on the top of a hill at 564 metres above sea level, Montalcino has preserved its charm of an untouched medieval village.Its territory, which is part of the Artistic, Natural and Cultural Park of the Val d’Orcia, is covered with vineyards (whose grapes produce prestigious wines) olive trees and woods consisting prevalently of holm oak trees. Its Latin name derivative, Ilex, is probably the origin of Mons Ilcinus (Montalcino). The most important permanent presence, which stands at a distance of three km from Montalcino, is found at the archeological site “Poggio della Civitella”. Since 1993, seasonal excavation have brought to the light Etruscan ruins belonging to the Archaic and the Hellenistic period. During the VI century B.C the area contained a village and then a fortress composed of three series of walls presumably abandoned during the III century B.C.
