Tasting Notes

Goedhuis, March 2020

Located in the cool north east of the region the tiny 7 hectare Il Colle estate, split between two sites, is a wonderful find for us at Goedhuis. Owner and winemaker Caterina Carli crafts some truly outstanding Brunello from her newly complete winery which sits just below the town of Montalcino. The 2014 Brunello is a wine of incredible femininty and finesse and bursting with delicate pure red cherry flavours. Enjoy this ethereal beauty right now and over the next 2-3 years.

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.
