Brunello is a term used by locals to refer to the dark brown color of the grapes at harvest. Carpineto’s single vineyard Brunello di Montalcino possesses a complex bouquet of nuts and spice, accented by hints of vanilla, cherry, and raspberry. Aged in Slavonian oak barrels for three years and cellared in bottle for 6 months, this wine offers a warm, smooth finish.
Color: intense ruby red, with pale pomegranate highlights. Bouquet: decisive, fine, broad and lingering with hints of vanilla, cherry, raspberry, and licorice. Flavor: dry, warm, smooth, well-textured and lingering on the palate.
great wine with roasts, grilled meats, wild game, and elaborate dishes, as well as rare T-bone steaks. It can also be served alone, as a “reflection” wine.
