This wine is comprised of 100% Montepulciano grapes and vinified in both stainless steel and cement tanks. A 6-month aging period in oak barrels adds to the complexity of the nose and palate. In the glass, the wine has an intense ruby red color, with aromas of ripe fruit and dried red flowers. The palate also expresses robust fruit flavors, combined with soft tannins and a long, spicy finish.
About this wine producer: Many generations of the Brunori family have grown grapes and produced wine in the Ancona province of Le Marche, Italy. In 1956, Mario Brunori established a winery in the San Nicolò quarter of the San Paolo di Jesi community, and became the first generation of his family to bottle their wine. Around this time, he also opened a small wine shop in the nearby town of Jesi. Today, the vineyards and winery are managed by Mario Brunori’s grandchildren, Carlo and Christina, along with the guidance of their father Giorgio. The 6.5 hectares (16 acres) of sandy-clay vineyards are well-situated on a south-east facing hill, where the levels of aeration and sun allow for proper grape ripening.
