The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino is a nintense ruby red colour It has subdued aromas of baking spice and dark fruit. The straightforward palate offers blackberry, vanilla and a touch of star anise alongside polished tannins.
This is a wonderful winemaking family, the Gianetti’s in Montalcino, who are compassionate, passionate and just simpatici about winemaking. From peasant roots (“Mezzadri” in Italian meaning share croppers) the family has been on the land in Montal-cino for many generations. It was only in 1964 that they were able to purchase the land and realise their dream of creating fine wine under their own label of La For-nace. The wines from La Fornace are starting to make a great impression on the world stage.
