Brunello di Montalcino

Val di Suga
Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita

An intense ruby-red colour with garnet highlights, it opens immediately rich and complex on the nose, with notes of black cherry, myrtle-leaved orange and violets. In the mouth it proves fresh, silky and elegant, with a precise tannic structure. Very long, with a pleasant aftertaste of cherries and chocolate.
