Black cherry, red cherry, plum, lavender, cassis, dried herbs, lavender wood, tobacco and leather. Sensuous and expressive, full bodied, but with a lightness of touch that makes you forget about its tannic presence. The carry is very long and here the tannins kick in – robust and burley, carried by fine acidity. Earthy elements of bay leaf, smoke, cured meat and balsamic, interwoven with the bright, piquant fruit. Classic, authoritative Brunello, with a shape and presence unique in the world of wine. What an experience. Waters Wine Co
The Torre estate in Sant’Angelo is planted to 5.6 hectares of vines with a southern and southwestern exposure in one of the highest altitude areas of Brunello (500m asl). 2.6ha were planted by founder Giuseppe Anania in 1976 which continues to be the source for the Brunello and a further 3ha by his son, Luigi Anania, in 1999 which goes into the Rosso. Certified organic since 2015, the grapes are hand-harvested and fully de-stemmed before fermenting with native yeast. The wines are racked three times in the first year after harvest and once annually in subsequent years. All wines are bottled (by gravity) – unfined and unfiltered.
