Podere Santa Maria

Montalcino, Toscana

Brunello di Montalcino

2013

Marino’s vineyards are amongst the highest in Montalcino, planted over a combination of sand, limestone and volcanic rock. The fruit for Marino’s Brunello is from a very strict selection made in the vineyard. This wine spends three week on skins, then four years resting in old botti before release and it is during this time, Marino believes, that the wine turns from a Sangiovese into a true Brunello. This vintage provided near-perfect growing conditions and in the hands of a master, the wine displays a tightrope balance, with every little detail in place.
