Gaja Pieve Santa Restituta Brunello di Montalcino 2012

In 2012, Gaja decided not to produce their flagship Sugarille single vineyard and Rennina vineyard blend in Brunello. This has resulted in all the highest quality fruit that would have been included in those wines ending up in the Pieve Santa Restituta Brunello di Montalcino, producing a wine of incredible complexity, depth and intensity.

Grapes are sourced from vineyards surrounding the Pieve in the south-west of Montalcino and further north in Torrenieri. This balance of two complex terroirs and micro-climates create a wonderfully elegant wine that captures the freshness and depth of the vintage. Gaja recommends drinking between 2019 and 2025.
