Tasting Notes

Goedhuis, March 2018

2015 is a very exciting vintage in Tuscany, and whilst the Brunellos will not be released for a few years we are very excited by the current release of the Rossos. Salicutti’s is medium garnet colour with dusty Sangiovese fruit on the nose. Its body of smooth fruit and grainy tannins flow through to a long, savoury finish of excellent quality.

Region

Montalcino, Italy

Located southwest of Chianti, Montalcino came into its own in the late 1880s when local producer,Biondi-Santi, discovered a Sangiovese clone in his vineyard that was darker in colour than the rest. Its colour, however, was not its only attribute. It produced a wine with notable body, structure and length. He named it ‘brunello' meaning little dark one.This grape's genetic properties along with Montalcino's relatively temperate climate combine tocreate a wine stylistically different to that of more northerly Chianti. They are usually releasedapproximately 5 years after the vintage following 2 to 4 years ageing in wood. The denomination ofRiserva indicates a wine usually produced with more concentrated grapes than the traditional cuvéeand requires a minimum of one additional year of ageing.Today, Montalcino has become one of the most sought after appellations in the Tuscan region.
