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. A wine which will reward extensive cellaring.
100% Sangiovese Grosso
Sangiovese Grosso grapes are locally referred to as Brunello because of the brownish color of the berries. This is one of Italy’s most famous and prestigious wines.
Tasting Notes: A decisive bouquet of vanilla, cherry, raspberry, and licorice. The aromas are
full, yet elegant. Dry, warm, and soft on the palate. This is very full wine with serious structure.
With proper storage, this wine will reward extensive cellaring of more than two decades. Decant before serving alongside hearty dishes, including roasts, grilled red meats, and wild game.
