Brunello di Montalcino "Diletta" D.O.C.G.

“Read more about this estate at the ‘regular’ brunello. Then you know we are now moving toward something special. Is a wine that mother Giovanna named after her daughter Diletta and, moreover, is only made in the best years. This was the case in 2016: hot summer, cool fall, small quantities but a great success throughout Tuscany.

Sourced from the two finest hectares on the highest part of the estate. Hand picked. Rigorous selection thereafter. The use of indigenous yeasts. After fermentation, lagering on large casks (50 hl) of Slavonian oak, a type widely used especially in Tuscany.

Extraordinary subtleties fall to us. Hints of eucalyptus and filigree rose petals High acidity. Acids with balsamic textures. Balancing on rolling forward bittersweet cherries, small plums shampooing, cassiscraquelé and fine-grained tannins.

Definitely not made by a dilettante this A Diletta.

Great brunello.”

Vinification

The Brunello di Montalcino “Diletta” takes its name from the daughter of the owner of the estate and is produced only in the best vintages. The grapes come from 2 hectares of vineyards in the highest part of the Col di Lamo estate, about 300 meters above sea level. Vinification takes place with indigenous yeasts produced with the same grapes from the vineyard. These grapes were harvested just days before to allow fermentation to begin and inseminate the full tank. The harvest is manual, as is the selection of the grapes. After vinification, the wine passes into a 50 hl barrel of Slavonian oak and rests there for more than 36 months. Then refinement in bottle for about 6 months. The production of “Diletta” is extremely limited: 6,600 bottles per year.
