Cerbaia Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2011

The Cerbaia vineyards are located on a breezy, northwest-facing slope in close proximity to the hilltop village of Montalcino. They thus enjoy a relatively cool microclimate, resulting in healthy, optimally ripened grapes. With meticulous adherence to best viticulture practices, Azienda Agricola Cerbaia specializes in limited production of high-quality Brunello and Rosso di Montalcino.

Rating: 90 Wine Enthusiast

Grape Variety: 100% Sangiovese.

Origin: Montalcino DOCG.

Aging: 4 years in oak barrels, then at least 6 months in the bottle for refinement.

Alcohol: 14%.

Tasting Notes: Deep garnet colour with a brownish hue, typical of aged Brunello. Rich, intense bouquet of violets, underbrush and blackberries layered with licorice and balsamic notes. On the palate, it is well structured, elegant, and velvety in texture. This is a fruit-forward vintage bursting with pure blackberry and cherry flavours. Drinking well now and can be cellared and enjoyed for at least another four years and probably longer.

Food Pairing: This is a superb wine for sipping and enjoying on its own. Also excellent with aged cheeses and cold cuts, meaty main dishes, roasted meats and game.

Serving Temperature: 18-20C is the optimal serving temperature for Brunello. It should be decanted (or at least uncorked) and allowed to "breathe" for a few hours before serving. This will bring out its complex flavours and soften its tannins for ultimate enjoyment.
