Gaja Pieve Santa Restituta Brunello di Montalcino 2017
Gaja's Brunello di Montalcino combines Sangiovese grapes from all the vineyards in Pieve Santa Restituta; Rennina, Sugarille and Torrenieri, in the north-eastern area of Montalcino. The grapes from the three different vineyards are all fermented and macerated separately for around three weeks. After 24 months of ageing in oak, the wines are blended and then aged for another six months in concrete vats. This vintage of Brunello di Montalcino displays initial aromas of dried rose petal and hawthorn, followed by blackberry and white pepper. The palate is juicy, smooth and lush with velvety tannins and vibrant acidity leading into an elegant and lingering finish.
