Padelletti - Brunello Di Montalcino - Italy
Overview: This is one of Montalcino’s oldest families; documents demonstrate they already had vineyards in 1570…Claudia Susanna Padelletti runs the firm today, after working for years in the banking industry. Her vines, on average twenty-five years old, are located at the family’s Rigaccini podere to the northeast of the town, at the foot of Montalcino’s hill…Vineyard altitude is 400 meters above sea level, guaranteeing sharp day and night temperature changes that generate fine and focused aromas, while calcium-rich clay soil lends full but elegant aromas.
Tasting Notes: A distinctive, complex, deeply flavorful red wine with the fresh sourness of Sangiovese shot through it. Hints of roast meat and salt plum. A big wine but the tannins are not at all bitter, a great example of clean traditional winemaking.
Pairing: Rib-eye steak
