Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2017 - Santa Giulia

5-star vintage, 2016. This is what the wine and food critics and the heads of the Consorzio di Tutela del Brunello di Montalcino have decreed. For the ideal climatic conditions that have allowed the grapes to reach full maturity at the time of harvest. Producers have thus "only" had to safeguard what nature had provided for them. The Brunello di Santa Giulia comes from an alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature followed by 36 months of aging in 25 and 30 hectolitre Slavonian oak barrels. Then, after bottling, there is another 6 months of rest in the cellar. Only then is the wine ready to be drunk. In the glass it is a beautiful ruby red colour, with an intense and ample bouquet. It ranges from ripe red fruit to sweet spices and toasty notes from aging in wood. In the mouth, however, it is a Brunello decidedly soft and well-balanced. An elegant wine with great structure, suitable for long aging, thanks to the presence of ripe tannins.

The Terzuoli family has owned the Santa Giulia farm since 1950. We are in one of the most beautiful areas of Italy. North-East slope of the hill of Montalcino. 18 hectares in total, located about 300 meters above sea level. Of these, 8 are cultivated with vineyards and 3 with olive groves, for the production of extra virgin olive oil. The rest is forest, fruit trees and cereal crops. Everything contributes to increasing biodiversity. After all, the conditions here are ideal and difficult to repeat. Thanks to a unique soil and a warm but slightly breezy climate. Textbook conditions to produce great red wines, structured and balanced. Nature, though generous, must still be indulged. In fact, in the Santa Giulia winery everything is done with respect for a raw material of absolute excellence. From the careful selection of the bunches of grapes, to working processes that respect tradition and are well integrated with the most modern oenological techniques. The results? They are here to try.
