Castello Tricerchi Brunello di Montalcino 2016Regular price £39.95
Aged for more than 2 years in durmast casks, this Brunello expresses the character and nobility of the hand-harvested grapes from the Vigna del Castello and the Vigna del Velo. From one of the most important vintages of the century, great ageing potential is combined here with an already appealing drinkability, characteristic of the Tricerchi style.
Region: Montalcino, Tuscany
The Castello Tricerchi Estate is situated on the northern side of Montalcino. Thirteen of the 400 hectares are covered with Brunello di Montalcino and Rosso di Montalcino vineyards. In the centre of the Estate stands the eponymous castle which was built in the
13th Century by the Altesi family and completed by the Tricerchi family in 1441; now it serves as both winery and home to their direct descendants, the Squarcia family.
