Brunello di Montalcino Riserva, Castello Tricerchi

100% Sangiovese from vineyards planted in 1995, located at 320 meters above sea level. The vines are planted to soils dense in calcareous clay and sand and have a southwest exposure. Harvest took place at the beginning of October, with maceration and fermentation occurring over 15-20 days in stainless steel. Wine is then aged in 15-hectoliter Slavonian oak casks for 48-52 months prior to bottling. 2,000 bottles produced annually.

Review:
Some lighter red cherry and chalky aromas. An air of ripeness to the nose and palate, delivering a smooth, open-knit feel. Drink or hold.
