Brunello di Montalcino DOCG – Az. Agr. Querce Bettina
100% Sangiovese Grosso (Brunello), selected harvesting
100% Sangiovese Grosso (Brunello), selected harvesting, fermentation and vinification in steel until malolactic fermentation is complete, ageing in 22 hl Slavonian wood casks for 30/36 months, bottling and bottle ageing for over 12 months. Released at least five years after the vintage.
Deep, ruby-to-garnet-red in colour. In the mouth, pleasantly dry, warm, full and persistent with consistent tannins. This is a wine for ageing, during which it will become more rounded. Unfiltered, so may produce a slight sediment.
This is a wine that can be enjoyed by itself, or matched with tasty foods such as seasoned cheeses and cold cuts, game and red meats. It even pairs with bitter chocolate. As with any rich, well structured red wine, avoid drinking it with vegetables that contain a lot of tannins.
