Fattoria dei Barbi Brunello di Montalcino Vigna del Fiore 2015

The Vigna del Fiore is an unique vineyard: its 14 acres (5.7 hectares) are situated in an area where the vine has been cultivated by our family since the XVI century. It is one of the Southernmost and oldest vineyard in the whole area of the Brunello di Montalcino. The particular exposition and the composition of the soil give this Brunello special qualities, with a very elegant bouquet and an harmonic and complex taste.
The Brunello Vigna del Fiore has been produced since 1981; for its harmony and charm it can be drunk and appreciated from the earlier years in bottle, despite being a wine with an excellent capacity of ageing.

Bouquet

Vinification Before the fermentation the grapes were subjected to a cold pre-fermentative maceration which consists of cooling the grapes at a temperature of 16 °C in an environment protected by CO2. This process increases the extraction of polyphenols and aroma compounds. The regular alcoholic fermentation followed and lasted 16-17 days at a controlled temperature of 27-28 °C.
Ageing After the racking and the malolactic fermentation the wine aged in small-medium size oak barrels (2,25 – 15 hl) for the first months. Later it completed the aging in larger oak barrels, for a total period of two years and then is bottled at least 4 months before the release.
