Boscoselvo

Brunello di Montalcino DOCG

Considered the best red wine in the world. Thanks to its excellent qualities it is without any doubt a wine for great occasions. The long four-year ageing, part of wich in wood, gives it a strong body, a long intense smell and a wrapping full taste with hints of vanilla and tobacco.

Type of soil
The soil is rich in rock fragments, also containing Galestro and Alberese, a medium-density clay mixture, rich in limestone, with tufa rock schists. Calcareous soil which tends to be shallow and not very fertile. Medium-density Eocenic soil, with a sub-alkaline pH value.

Fermentation
The grapes are destemmed, lightly pressed, then placed to ferment in steel vats filled up to maximum two thirds of their capacity. Fermentation occurs through selected yeasts for about 12-15 days at a temperature of 20-24°C. This is followed by maceration for 15 days at 28°C. Racking and delestage are carried out to help extract noble substances from the skin.
