  • This Brunello is rich and concentrated, with vibrant cherry flavours and a strong mineral base. It's full-bodied and structured, with smooth tannins and a sophisticated, long finish. The winter had mild temperatures and little frost. Spring brought heavy rainfall after a dry autumn, and May and June were cooler and wetter than usual. But from June 21st, the weather normalized. The summer was great - not too hot, with refreshing breezes and light rain. Overall, 2016 was a traditional vintage and showed great potential for ageing.

The carefully selected fruit was vinified in temperature-controlled 100-hectolitre stainless steel vats. Fermentation took place with selected yeasts at approximately 24 to 26 °C, followed by a 10-day maceration at 28 to 30°C to extract the colour, flavour, and tannins. Daily tastings ensured the desired levels of extraction were achieved. The wine was aged in 20 to 25 hectolitre Slavonian oak vats for 30 months.

An opulent and concentrated Brunello with bright cherry notes underpinned by stony minerality. Full-bodied and firm, with silky tannins and a long finish full of finesse

The Pinino estate vineyards are located north of Montalcino, embedded like a natural amphitheatre into the beautiful and famous hillside of Montosoli. This distinctive geographical location has become known as one of the region's best areas for wine production. The Sangiovese grapes are grown in northwest and north-eastern facing vineyards at an altitude of 310 to 320 metres. The lower temperatures allow the grapes to express their finesse. The Brunello di Montalcino comes from the more vigorous plots, which are grown in soils with a higher quantity of clay and limestone. The vines are trained according to a spurred cordon method. The vineyards are cultivated sustainably and are certified by Agriqualit; copper and sulphur are the only treatments employed. The grapes are exclusively hand-picked at optimal maturity. Each vineyard is divided into micro-sections, and the vinification is tailored to each section.
