Podere Salicutti Brunello di Montalcino Piaggione 2012
The grapes for the Brunello di Montalcino come from two vineyard sites just a few hundred meters apart. These grapes are grown at altitudes between 420 and 470 meters in a stony soil with a high lime content. The majority of the vines were planted in 1994 with a small additional section of Sangiovese planted in 2007. The Piaggone vineyard site has the steepest gradient and because of its exposure and climactic conditions, it produces grapes with a higher sugar content and a resulting wine richer in polyphenols and more intensely colored. 100% Sangiovese. Stainless steel fermentation and maceration for 18 days. The wine is aged in a combination of 5, 10, 20, and 40 hectoliter french and slavonian oak barrels for 3 years and then aged further in the bottle for 8 months before release. 8000 bottles produced.
