Wine Description:

In Tenuta Torciano the 2011 was a great year for our Brunello.

The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is a 100% Sangiovese Grosso wine called in Montalcino: Brunello; that was picked on the gravelly soils as early as 20 September until 15 October, in the vineyards of Montalcino.

It has a show-stopping bouquet that is beautifully defined and very complex, intense, rich and with an elegant flavor of violet with wild wood fruits. It is a wine of strong personality, with a dry, full, smooth and well-balanced taste. This is a Brunello with no hair out of place with flavor.


Wine Cellar:

Tenuta Torciano Winery is situated in the heart of Tuscany, 35 minutes from Florence and 20 minutes from Siena, surrounded by beautiful rolling hills and a succession of unique greenery that features towering cypress trees, long stretches of beautiful vineyards, olive groves, forests of oaks and lovely villages.

When you visit Tenuta Torciano Winery, you will totally immerse yourself in Italian culture, together with a Tuscan family consisting of 13 generations of wine producers. Here you will experience warm hospitality and additional Tuscan traditions handed down from father to son.


Area of Production:

Montalcino in the province of Siena, famous for its history and natural and artistic beauty.

Brunello di Montalcino is one of Italy's most famous and prestigious wines. DOCG regulations require Brunello vineyards to be planted on hills with good sun exposure, at altitudes not surpassing 600 meters (1968ft). This limit is intended to ensure the grapes reach optimal ripeness and flavor before being harvested.


Grapes:

The Brunello di Montalcino is made exclusively from Sangiovese Grosso grapes, cultivated on the slopes around Montalcino. Sangiovese Grosso is the large-berried form of the normal Sangiovese. Its name means 'little dark one'. The use of “grosso” (big) and its inclusion in the name of the wine is useful to differentiate this wine from Chianti.
