Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Silvio Nardi

We are in the picturesque town of Montalcino which still preserves its charm as an ancient medieval village. At the beginning of the 20th century, Montalcino was no more than a tranquil village of the Tuscan countryside: a few houses, shops and vineyards. The terrains of the Tenute Silvio Nardi have shared in the history this area.

The Tenuta is composed by Two estates, two slopes, West and East eight plots, several terroirs…
The finesse and identity that Sangiovese grosso expresses in each vineyard of the two estates, so different in their soils and climates, are undeniable.

Manachiara, exposed to the east where sun rises, offers full bodied and powerful wines.
Casale del Bosco, in the west side where sun goes down, offers elegant and complex wines.

We tasted: Brunello di Montalcino 2012

This Brunello composed of 100% Sangiovese is characterized by a ruby red color with garnet highlights. The nose opens with an intense and complex bouquet, with hints of berries, anise  enriched with pleasant spicy notes and delicate hints of vanilla. On the palate it is pleasantly warm, with soft tannins. The wine has a great structure, with a notable persistence.

Perfect to accompany roasts and game, it is ideal paired with aged cheeses.
