Wine Region: Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy
Type: Red Wine
Intense, deep ruby red colour with slight garnet highlights. Clean, intense and complex aromas with hints of ripe fruit, accompanied by floral notes, enhanced with a delicate spicy component. On the palate it shows a mellow first impact, continuing with a steady evolution, supported by the right degree of acidity. Great structure, supple, sweet and enveloping tannins, very good length. An excellent wine to lay down.
About the Winery
When Silvio Nardi purchased the Casale del Bosco estate in 1950, Montalcino was a little, rural village, the powerful Consorzio del Vino Brunello was not yet an idea, and Nardi was the first "foreigner" to invest in Montalcino (he was from Umbria). Today, Montalcino is a renowned wine community with many international investors, and the 36 vineyard plots of Tenute Silvio Nardi extend east and west of the town on three separate estates. Since 1990, Silvio Nardi's youngest daughter, Emilia Nardi, has focused on vineyard development and produced wines of depth that are profound expressions of the land they come from.
