Brunello di Montalcino DOP - Pieva by Gaja

Winery

PIEVE S. RESTITUTA, Montalcino, Tuscany

Denomination 

Brunello di Montalcino D.O.P.

Varieties

Sangiovese

Vineyards

A little quantity of the grapes from Rennina and Sugarille vineyards are blended with the grapes from the 9-hectare vineyard in Torrenieri, in the north- eastern area of Montalcino.

The soil in Torrenieri is a mixture of clay, tuff and sand, while the soil in Rennina and Sugarille is clayey- calcareous.

Winemaking method

The grapes from the different vineyards ferment and macerate separately for around three weeks. After 24 months of ageing in oak, they are blended and then age for another 6 months in concrete vats.

Characteristics 

Intense colour. Expressive nose with cherry, aromatic herb, flowery and juniper notes. On the palate it reveals mature tannins, balanced acidity, rich structure and lingering finish.
