From the classic region of Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino is one of the great under-appreciated wines of Italy. 100% Sangiovese which undergoes an extended period of pre-fermentation maceration to extract maximum colour, flavour and tannins which affords the wine its ability to mature for long periods.
Brunello di Montalcino must be aged in oak - commonly Slavonian oak - for a minimum of 2 years. Traditionally however, winemakers would age their Brunellos in oak for at least 3 years before release.
Notable producers include Banfi, Biondi-Santi, Conti-Costanti, Fattoria Dei Barbi and Salvioni.
