The Brunello Riserva comes from the plot of land on which our oldest vineyard lies, with vines that are approximately 25 years old. From this vineyard, situated at 350 meters above sea level, only the smallest top-quality bunches are selected, to produce – following a painstaking process in the winery – a wine that is complex and elegant but also richly structured and long-lived, which represents to the full the level of quality of our terroir.

The Riserva is produced only in outstanding years from the point of view of the climate and the quality of the fruit, from a selection of less than 10% of the finest grapes from the oldest vineyards. In its production, we follow the same philosophy as that applied to our other Brunellos, but extending the length of each phase and increasing the use of new oak, in order to enhance the grapes’ potential to the full. The result is a wine of great elegance,
structure and longevity which, over time, will express all the potential of our splendid terroir as well as the perfect weather of the years in which it is produced.

  • Color Garnet, with highlights tending toward brick-red.
  • Bouquet It is vigorous and youthful on the nose, with notes of red fruits;
    balsamic yet ethereal.
  • Taste Dry, perfectly well-balanced, full, fleshy, austere yet velvety, with a hint of oak from its aging in barrel.

Its ideal accompaniments are main courses of red meat and game. It is also excellent with cheeses, root vegetables, vegetable stews and Asian dishes
