Piombaia Brunello di Montalcino 2016

13% abv

Still showing a tightly wound dense corona of plush aromatics this is a long and black-fruited delight. Dark ruby compact colour, the nose is young and brooding with layers of dark chocolate infused cherries, cherry liqueur, cocoa powder, liquorice, leather, dusty clay with a great balsamic & pomegranate twang. The high altitude vineyards give the wines breadth, lift and lovely acidity which balances out the weighted tension of the tannins. Very long on the palate delivering a savoury and progressive hit of blueberry and blackberry sorbet tones through to the long finish. This is opening up now after its recent bottling and its fine balance drinks well from the outset with the layers of structured fruit, tannin and glorious technicolour freshness sure to combine and develop superbly.

After a 60 day fermentation with wild yeasts in stainless steel the wine aged for 45 months in 30hl cask and 4 months in barrel. All organic grapes from vineyards farmed to biodynamic principles.

Piombaia is located in the heart of the historical production area of Brunello di Montalcino, with 12 hectares of vineyard that extend around the winery 'Piombaia', to the southwest of Montalcino, on the road for Sant' Angelo in Colle, and around the "La Crocina", located on the road from Montalcino to Sant' Antimo. Both are owned by the Rossi-Cantini family. This is one of the highest areas of Montalcino and the vineyards are located at an altitude that varies from 400 to 600 mt asl - the second highest in the DOCG.

They favour the production of elegant, ethereal wines with a long refinement in the bottle and have been in conversion to biodynamics, with the aim of safeguarding the harmony between nature, earth and man and to promote soil fertility and vitality, of flora and fauna in the vineyards. The fermentation cellar is strategically located in the middle of the vines, so as to guarantee the least stress possible to the grape. Wines are aged in tonneaux (500-liter oak barrels) and large botti that are perfect for the long aging of Brunello di Montalcino. Piombaia is managed by Roberto Cantini and sons Vittorio, who takes care of the farm and is involved in the production of wines and Francesco who is an agronomist, and daughter Cecilia, who takes care of the marketing and communication.
