Salicutti Brunello Di Montalcino DOCG 2000
Salicutti Brunello Di Montalcino DOCG 2000 is made with organically produced Sangiovese grapes harvested from the Vigna del Teatro and Vigna del Piaggione vineyards.
After fermentation, the wine is aged in a combination of large French and Slavonian oak casks for 3 years, then bottled without fining or filtration and matured for an additional year.
Garnet colors with floral notes, and aromas of ripe cherry and balsamic vinegar, while the palate displays a complexity of spices, blue fruits, sweet bing cherries and plums, rounding out the tannins with attractive coffee/chocolate finish.
