Brunello di Montalcino Bramante 2003

Brunello di Montalcino Bramante 2003

 

The vintage year 2003 was characterised by abundant spring rains and lots of heat, so much heat that it almost led to drought conditions during the months of July and August.
The lack of rain put the vines to test, but September brought some rain that returned the plants to equilibrium. This particular climactic trend led the grapes to ripen somewhat early, and
at the moment of harvest they were very concentrated but with optimal parameters in terms of both sugars and other components. The harvest took place on 26 and 27 September.
From the best grapes of the vineyards of Sanlorenzo and the perfect fusion of territory, vines, and cantina, is born Bramante, a grandly elegant Brunello di Montalcino with an intense capacity for expressing itself best over time. Vinified in steel vats at controlled temperatures, it is then aged for 3 years in wooden barrels with a capacity from 30-35 hectolitres.
After bottling it is allowed to rest for at least 6 months before being ready to be placed on the market. After five years Bramante’s various perfumes and aromas have blended into a captivating medley. Dark garnet red, with a generous nose, it has aromas of dried flowers, spices, and ripe fruits. The impact on the palette is instantly extremely pleasant, with a good structure and tannins of exemplary extraction. It finishes long.
