    Tasting Notes:
    Il Palazzone Brunello is intense ruby red with deep garnet hues. The bouquet is intense and ethereal with aromas ranging from dark fruit and berries to chocolate, coffee, leather, liquorice and balsamic notes. The wines are silky and elegant, potent yet balanced and characterised by sweet tannins. Il Palazzone Brunellos are beautifully balanced with all the promise of their bouquet fulfilled in the mouth and finish.

    GRAPES: Il Palazzone Brunello di Montalcino DOCG is produced with 100% Sangiovese Grosso grapes from our own property in Montalcino.

    VINEYARDS: The estate has three separate vineyards in quite different areas of Montalcino.

    GROWTH SYSTEM: Balanced single spur cordon

    YIELD PER HECTARE: Generally less than 5.000 kg. grapes, much lower than the maximum yield permitted for DOCG production.

    HARVEST: Usually the first week of October. The grapes are picked by hand using small crates.

    VINIFICATION: Long maceration in contact with the marcs with frequent pumpovers. Maximum temperature 28 – 30° C

    AGING: Traditional aging times are respected. Il Palazzone Brunello often spends nearly four years in wood. Current DOCG regulations specify a minimum of only two years. We use large Slavonian oak barrels. - Winery

    This dark and masculine Brunello offers black cherry, cassis, prune and spice aromas backed by touches of chocolate and leather. The wine is smooth and rich on the close with a long, supple finish. - M.L. - Wine Enthusiast Magazine 92 Points

    This fluid, supple red evokes cherry, berry, underbrush and spice flavors. On the slim side, with good intensity and a dusty, tobacco-tinged finish. Best from 2014 through 2024. 400 cases made. –BS - Wine Spectator Magazine 91 Points

    A surprisingly medium-bodied wine for the year, the 2007 Brunello di Montalcino is also one of the more open wines readers will find in this vintage. Sweet red cherries, tobacco, spices and crushed flowers are all woven together nicely in this mid-weight Brunello. The 2007 is supple, gracious and immensely appealing. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022. - Robert Parker 91 Points
