    Gianni Brunelli was from an old Montalcino family. He dedicated his life to upholding the local traditions of great food, wine and hospitality.

Give this time to fully develop.

    The wines from this estate are distinguished by their overall elegance and fine nature. The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino shows its youth with tight aromas of forest fruit and wild cherry. This wine requires more bottle time before it starts to blossom. In the mouth, it delivers sultry and sophisticated notes of tobacco and campfire ash. The wine ages in Slavonian oak casks for 30 months.
