Tenuta San Giorgio Brunello di Montalcino “Ugolforte” DOCG 2014
Fun Fact: Ugolforte was the name of a local “Robin Hood” who led the people of Montalcino against the occupying forces in the 12th century.
Enthralling garnet red colour. The nose is initially dominated by blueberries but soon develops a deeper presence of red fruits. Violet and black cherry flavours arise on the palate and the wine closes with a long coffee and oaky finish. Big, beautifully pure and inviting, with juicy acidity and fine tannins.
Sourced from 10–15 year-old vineyards located at an altitude of 450 metres above sea level with clay and heavy stone soils. The climate is temperate Mediterranean but windy. This Brunello di Montalcino is made with 100% Sangiovese Grosso. Fermentation occurs spontaneously in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. After the malolactic fermentation, the wine ages for 2 years in 30 hl oak casks and is released 4 years after the harvest.
Secret tip: we suggest decanting the wine at least 1 hour before serving.
