Brunello di Montalcino, Martoccia di Brunelli Luca 2014/15
Martoccia di Brunelli Luca, Montalcino, Martoccia, Tuscany
In 1964, the Brunelli family bought a small farm comprising some 3 hectares of vines in Martoccia, on the edge of Montalcino. In 1988, Mauro and his son Luca purchased a further parcel of land so that now the estate totals 15 hectares, of which 5 hectares are classified as Brunello di Montalcino DOCG. The vineyards are located on the southwest side of Montalcino at an average altitude of 250m, ensuring that the wines express as much fragrance as possible. Luca encourages low yields in order to focus on quality and authenticity.
Bright ruby red, tending to garnet with aging. Bouquet of cherry, plum and spices. Full-bodied, with lively acidity and red fruit flavor. Long and fresh aftertaste. Wine with a long aging potential.
Grape: 100% Sangiovese
