This special, limited edition wine is made only in spectacular vintages and in small quantities from 100% Sangiovese Grosso grapes hand harvested from the Altesino, Macina, Pianezzine and Castelnuovo dell'Abate vineyards. This riserva is produced only in the best years in very limited quantities.

Tasting Notes

Brunello Riserva offers a solid, full body and excellent aging potential. Its ample and complex bouquet is reminiscent of violets, wild berries, cedar, leather, tobacco and spices. On the palate, it is austere and seductive with a perfect blend of fruit, acidity and mouth coating tannins. This is the perfect bottle for Brunello lovers.

Food Pairing

Pair with Steak au poivre, rack of lamb or beef carpaccio.
