Il Veltro, Brunello di Montalcino, DOCG, 2014

Lot: 1205 Supplier: AVENUE SRL. Country/Region: Italy/Toscana Major Grape: Brunello

A rich and succulent wine with great potential for aging, Il Veltro 2014 is vibrant in colour with a slight brick hue developing. The intense bouquet has aromas of fresh coffee and coffee liqueur combined with vanilla, treacle and bitter cherries. It is lively on the palate with an elegant tannin structure and medium to full bodied. Montalcino has over the years developed its own particular clones of Sangiovese known as Brunello. Vineyards are planted in the south-west of the DOC, overlooking the Orcia River at 300 metres with southern exposure. Not an easy vintage, in 2014 the mild and rainy winter was followed by high rainfall in June and July, creating some disease pressure in the vineyards. Fortunately, the vintage was saved by a mild and sunny September and produced high quality wines. Grapes were fermented in wide and short tanks designed to extract colour and tannins delicately. The wine was matured for three years in large Slavonian and Allier casks.
