The grapes used to produce Brunello di Montalcino DOCG wine are harvested in September/October, when the grapes have reached ideal ripeness.
The wine is produced from 100% Sangiovese grapes, vinified in stainless steel vats at controlled temperatures. It then undergoes the customary long maceration period and pump overs.
The next step is malolactic fermentation, after which the wine is aged for at least 24 months in Slavonia oak barrels.
It is subsequently bottled and aged in the bottles for another two years, to reach the 4-year ageing period. The wine is released on the market in the 5th year after the harvest. Fornacina Winery’s Brunello di Montalcino has great personality with a diverse and fascinating profile. It is perfect paired with red meats, grilled or braised, and it is excellent with aged cheeses.
Brunello di Montalcino, Rosso di Montalcino and Grappa di Brunello are our traditional products. We grow our grapes following the organic farming method to preserve our profound tie to the territory.g
