Salicutti - Sorgente 2015 Brunello di Montalcino
The estate consists of 11 hectares of land, divided into vineyard (about 4 hectares), olive grove (about 1 hectare) and wood (about 3 hectares). The grapes are harvested strictly by hand in small wooden boxes and brought to the winery by hand. Maturation in Slavonian oak barrels for 36 months. Refinement in bottle for 12 months.
The 2015 vintage is a historical year for Brunello di Montalcino that nobody should miss. The wines show impressive precision of vivid fruit, fine tannins and freshness in acidity despite their ripeness and richness which makes them some of the most exciting in years.
A new gravity flow winery was built and completed in June 2019 and as no 2014 Brunello di Montalcino was produced, this is the first Brunello to be released to the market since their stellar 2013.
The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino displays an authentic, classically pure personality that is characterized by dark cherry fruits, botanical spices, sweet leather, cherry cola and grilled herbs. The wine has a fabulously intricate level of beguiling complexity that you often see with the best organic fruit and winemaking. This Brunello wine is classically solid in frame but also generous and precise showing a wonderfully balanced acidity and a zesty, energetic intensity. Always age worthy, this Cuvee is sure to be one of the most sought after wines of the vintage yet again.
