Rosso di Montalcino Sheet Vintage 2016

Controlled designation of origin

Description

Sheet Vintage 2016

CLIMATE: The vintage developed clear, net and fragrant scents, a strong acidic structure which guarantees long ageing, and an intense and bright colour. After a rainy spring, the autumn was very hot during the day and cool at night, an excursion that made the grapes particularly rich in acidity, color and perfumes. The harvest was perfect, one of the most beautiful in recent years. In May and June the weather was cool, with good rainfall, while in summer the heat was balanced, not excessive

CLASSIFICAZIONE CONSORZIO DEL BRUNELLO: 5 stars

HARVEST: end of September, first week of October

GRAPE: 100% sangiovese grosso

VINIFICATION: Light pressing fermentation in stainless steel at controlled temperature, maceration on the skins for 8-10 days

AGEING: 6 months in French and Slavonian wood casks from 35 to 60 Hl then 3-4 months in bottle

PRODUCTION: 80.000 bottles

ANALYSIS: Alcool svolto(%): 13,50, Acidità totale (g/lt.): 5,5, Acidità volatile (g/lt.):0,25, SO2 Totale (mg/lt.): 70, SO2 libera (mg/lt.) 21, pH: 3,60, Estratto secco netto (g/lt.) 29,4

DESCRIPTION: l’annata ha sviluppato profumi franchi, netti, fragranti, una spalla acida forte che è garanzia di un lungo invecchiamento e un colore intenso e vivace.

GASTRONOMIC ACCOMPANIMENTS: it goes well with dressed pork products, mature cheeses and fairly strong-flavoured main dishes
