San Felice - Brunello Riserva 'Il Quercione' 2016 750ml
2016 Brunello di Montalcino DOCG Riserva 750ml
The area of Montalcino is the most arid of all the Tuscan DOCG zones, so the wines tend to be intensely flavoured and well-balanced.
Produced only in exceptional growing years, this Riserva is considered by San Felice to be the finest expression of its Campogiovanni terroir. Carefully-selected clusters of Sangiovese Grosso from its 2.5-hectare Il Quercione vineyard yield a wine that effortlessly marries together depth, elegance, and authenticity of style, plus a remarkable capacity for lengthy ageing.
Very deep ruby red; releases remarkably emphatic fragrances of ripe berries, spice, cocoa powder, and tanned leather. Very full in the mouth, lean in character but with warm alcohol and ripe, juicy tannins. Ideal partner to mixed grills, game, dishes with mushrooms or truffles, and aged cheeses.
- 100% Sangiovese
- Ideal with spiced foods, such as Middle Eastern or southeast Asian cuisines
