The Vigna Spuntali is historically known as the best area on the southwestern side of Montalcino, the side facing the sea. Spuntali represents a historical cru for Brunello di Montalcino; it is characterized by a unique terroir, thanks to which it has become over the years a historical and well-recognizable icon of Brunello.
The Spuntali side is the sunniest and driest of the three Brunello slopes; it is characterized by a Mediterranean climate due to its proximity to the sea, less than 40 km away. The sea plays a decisive role here, mitigating the hot summer nights and cold winters. This allows an early spring vegetative awakening and an important temperature difference between day and night during the summer period. These particular climatic conditions make this the first area to be harvested in the entire area of Brunello di Montalcino.
In this unique terroir Sangiovese fully exploits the beneficial effect of the sun, reaches its maximum ripeness and gives rise to very creamy wines, with sweet, soft tannins and notes of white fruit.
- Optimum serving temperature:Between 16ºC and 18ºC
A great and powerful Brunello with deep garnet red colour and showing a delicate and fruit-driven nose. More elegance and warmth on palate with loads of red fruit, dominated by cherries and blackberries, some herbs and already surprisingly soft tannins, all culminating in a very long finish. A strong Sangiovese ‘fist’ in a velvet glove.
