IGT Toscana ‘Poggio Apricale’ Martoccia di Brunelli Luca, Tuscany 2016
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 autfenticity.
