    • "Fontanelle" Chardonnay Toscana IGT 2017

      “Fontanelle” Chardonnay Toscana IGT 2017

      Fontanelle comes from a single vineyard of the same name at 250m altitude from its own vineyards. Banfi has adapted the concept of his Chardonnay with the vintage 2017. The first edition of this new white top plant presents itself soft, with a delicate wood note, invigorating fruit acid and notes of peach, apple and apricot. It is dry and of high elegance. SUPERIORE.DE

      "This is a delightful Tuscan chardonnay with just the right combination of freshness and concentration on the nose – all the more impressive, given it's from the difficult 2017 vintage. Freshly picked daffodils, apricots, peach pit, fresh mangoes and a touch of vanilla. Full-bodied and very oily on the palate, but the medium acidity does well to keep this taut and on topic."

    About the region
    Tuscany | Montalcino
     

    The Brunello di Montalcino is one of the most legendary success stories in viticulture in Italy. If not worldwide. Although a wine known as Brunello appears in old documents as early as the 14th century, it was born in 1888, when Clemente Santi first described a wine from his own Sangiovese clones, selected for years, as Brunello on the estate of his family Biondi-Santi, Il Greppo. He allowed the wine to mature for several years in large Slavonian oak barrels. Since until 1945 only four vintages were produced (1888, 1891, 1925 and 1945), the wine was in conversation because of its quality and became known beyond the borders. Today one would probably say cult wine to it. Because it was so rare, but at the same time of legendary quality, it also fetched an incredibly high price - for Italian wine until then. For a long time, Biondi-Santi was practically the only manufacturer, at least until the 1970s it was still the largest. Biondi-Santi is still one of the showpiece wineries today. And one of the most expensive.

    In 1966 Brunello di Montalcino became DOC, in 1980 the first DOCG in Italy, both simultaneously with the "little brother" Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. There were just 63,583 bottles of Brunello di Montalcino from the 1980 vintage and today there are over 10 million bottles. The then 700 hectares of cultivated land became 24,000 hectares, but only 3,500 for Brunello. The number of producers increased tenfold, among them many investors, also from abroad, who already leaf out half a million euros for one hectare that allows Brunello cultivation.

    Brunello di Montalcino is subject to strict production guidelines that are monitored by the Consorzio del Vino Brunello di Montalcino. Each bottle carries a band with a number with which the wine can be traced back to the producer. All producers are represented in the Consorzio. By the way, this is the only Consorzio in Italy where this is the case. The yield is regulated, as are the grape varieties used for wines from Montalcino - Brunello, Rosso, Sant'Antimo and Moscadello di Montalcino - may be used.

    For Brunello di Montalcino this is 100% Sangiovese. Even today, the majority of clones can be traced back to the selection of Biondi-Santi. In recent years, clone selection has also been carried out at Castello Banfi under scientific direction. Here the Sangiovese grape is also simply called Brunello grape. Experts also call it Sangiovese Grosso because it is a clone with slightly larger berries than in Chianti, for example.

    Rosso di Montalcino also requires 100% Sangiovese, although the yield may be slightly higher and the wine marketed earlier. At Rosso Sant'Antimo other grape varieties are also allowed, but the main variety must always dominate at least 70%. Other red wines, mostly cuvées, are labelled as Rosso Toscana IGT.

    Montalcino is a small mountain town about 40 kilometers south of Siena. The vineyards are located in the surrounding hills at altitudes between 120 and 650m above sea level. The climate here is hot and dry, but is tempered by the altitude and the steady winds. The Sangiovese matures particularly well here. The soils are stony and barren throughout, the vines must have deep roots, which promotes minerality.

    Brunello may not be put on sale until after 1 January of the fifth year following the harvest. Before that, at least two years in the barrel (usually four) and subsequent bottle storage are required. In the case of Riserva, the ripening period is extended by one year. Names such as Altesino, Biondi Santi - Il Greppo, Casanova di Neri, Castello Banfi, Ciacci Piccolomini, Donna Olga, Il Poggione, Lisini, Mastrojanni, Poggio Antico, Siro Pacenti, Tenuta Fanti, Uccelleria or Valdicava have made the wine-growing region great. International awards are given year after year, the success: most of the top wines are exported and achieved considerable prizes. SUPERIORE.DE
