Varietal: Sangiovese Grosso
Region: Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy
A classic Brunello, this wine shows aromas of sour cherry, dried fig, fresh earth, and orange rind. The cru itself, named Spuntali, enjoys a southwestern exposure, meaning the grapes get abundant sunshine and full ripeness. Sweet tannins and balanced acidity are hallmarks of the excellent 2016 vintage, with persistent flavors of plums, blackberries, and savory herbs.
