    • Brunello di Montalcino Riserva DOCG 2012

      Brunello di Montalcino Riserva DOCG 2012

      2012 was a very good year in Montalcino and the consortium awarded the maximum rating of 5 stars. The bouquet is wonderfully open with aromas of sour cherries and dark forest fruits, on the palate a delicate structure. Compact, well integrated tannin and an impressive finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Simone Bilorsi coaxes gorgeously pure Sangiovese from his organically cultivated vineyards. In years he deems good enough, the Riserva is made exclusively from his holdings in Castelnuovo dell'Abate and aged in Slavonian oak casks. The 2012 is savoury and woody, with nuances of tobacco and fennel lifting ripe cherry fruit. There's plenty of concentration on the palate, though slightly dry tannins need time to resolve. It finishes with lovely florality." Decanter

      "Very impressive deep-set dried cherry aromas with a spicy and cedary edge, as well as attractive sweet aged meats and dried flowers. Some peppery nuances, too. The palate has impressive power, draw and cut, The flavors ride deep and long, delivering terrific length." James Suckling

    • Brunello di Montalcino Riserva DOCG 2015 (BIO)

      Brunello di Montalcino Riserva DOCG 2015 (BIO)

      Fornacinas Riserva 2015 is a bold and powerful wine that makes a great first impression. The wine is never shy or reserved. It offers intensity on two levels: On the one hand, it offers a wonderfully firm structure with plenty of warmth and harmony. On the other hand, it convinces with textural richness and wonderful secondary aromas that come with three years of oak aging. The tannins will tolerate another one or two years of bottle ripening to become even softer and more relaxed. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Firmness and finesse with blackberry and black-cherry aromas and flavors. Some walnut and wet-leaf undertones. It’s medium-to full-bodied with fine, succulent tannins that follow through nicely." James Suckling

      "Balsam notes with cola, rosemary and lavender essence lift gently from the bouquet of the Fornacina 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva. This wine is made with organically farmed fruit. As it opens in the glass, you get a clear picture of the dark fruit at its core and of the delicate limestone dustings that frame the bouquet. This wine draws its fruit from a five-hectare parcel with Alkaline soils rich with numerous mineral components. The complexity of the soils is reflected in the bouquet, and this warm vintage expression delivers ample structure, velvety tannins and lasting intensity." Robert Parker

    About the winemakersFornacinaTuscany | Montalcino
    Fornacina

    A record from 1922 proves that Roger Biliorsi informed a regulatory agency about the sale of a small quantity of wine. This proves that winegrowing in the Biliorsi family has deep roots in the past. After the small Fornacina winery outside Montalcino had initially produced simple table wines, Ruggero Biliorsi began to professionalise production at the beginning of the 1980s and to produce quality wines from then on. The first few hundred bottles of Brunello date back exactly to 1981. Six years later, Ruggero's sons Simon and Mauro took over the business on an equal footing. The two winegrowers are supported in their work by oenologist Attilio Pagli and agronomist Folco Giovanni Bencini. Both of them are strictly monitoring that the traditional rules for Brunello are strictly adhered to.

    Azienda Agricola Fornacina has a total vineyard area of only five hectares. Three hectares extend at an altitude of about 400 metres to the south and south-east in direct proximity to the estate, the remaining plots are located on the south side in Castelnuovo dell.'Abate. The planting density is usually 4,500 vines per hectare. Since 2004 the grapes have been grown organically.

    In addition to a Brunello - in excellent years it can also be a Brunello Riserva - Rosso and Grappe are also produced on the small country estate. In the meantime, the Brunello estate has long become a household name for lovers from all over the world. The wines are regarded as extremely authentic, cleanly vinified and still affordable for normal earners.

    The completely renovated modern wine cellar has two levels, one of which is seven metres below ground level. The winemaking, ageing and bottling areas are separated from the premises used for meetings, tasting and direct sales. To bring the Brunello to maturity, large barrels of Slovenian oak with a volume of 20 to 35 hectolitres are used. SUPERIORE.DE
