Tasting Notes

Ripe red cherries are joined by savory herbs and mushrooms.  The palate continues the fruit-savory aspect with forest floor and black caps. Medium in body with certain rusticity and youthful tannins. If you are able, open it 30 minutes before you are planning on drinking it as it.

ABOUT THE WINE            

Azienda Bruni began in the mid-­?1950s, dedicated to breeding of meat and dairy animals, and with the future hope of planting vines on the property. The Bruni family began commercial winemaking in 1974, the same year that they welcomed twins Marco and Moreno, who would eventually take over the family business at just 20 years old. Today, Marco and Moreno are responsible for crafting the wines that come from their 40 hectares of vineyards in the Tuscan Maremma. Their focus is primarily on the varietals native to the region, but they also explore non-­?traditional varietals as well.

Grapes for this blend come from a combination of vines planted from 1996 to 2004 on loam and clay soils. The wine ferments in temperature-­?controlled stainless steel tanks for 10 days. Seventy percent of the final blend aged in steel vats, while the other 30% rested in 500 liter French barrels for a total of 6-­?8 months. Before release, the wine aged in bottle for 3 months.
