Il Palazonne Squadra Pix By Ms. Shabazz 22852 150x150 Brunello di Montalcino D.O.C.G. [1]

Il Palazzone Brunello is intense ruby red with deep garnet hues. The bouquet is intense and ethereal with aromas ranging from dark fruit and berries to chocolate, coffee, leather, liquorice and balsamic notes. The wines are silky and elegant, potent yet balanced and characterised by sweet tannins. Il Palazzone Brunellos are beautifully balanced with all the promise of their bouquet fulfilled in the mouth and finish.

ALCOHOL / VOL. 13.5%
TOTAL PRODUCTION: 8-12.000 bottles, depending on vintage

GRAPES: Il Palazzone Brunello di Montalcino DOCG is produced with 100% Sangiovese Grosso grapes from our own property in Montalcino.

VINEYARDS: The estate has three separate vineyards in quite different areas of Montalcino.

GROWTH SYSTEM: Balanced single spur cordon

YIELD PER HECTARE: Generally less than 5.000 kg. grapes, much lower than the maximum yield permitted for DOCG production.

HARVEST: Usually the first week of October. The grapes are picked by hand using small crates.

VINIFICATION: Long maceration in contact with the marcs with frequent pumpovers. Maximum temperature 28 – 30° C
