Tenuta La Fuga Brunello Di Montalcino 750ml

La Fuga is in the region of Montalcino, whose borders delineate the zone of Brunello di Montalcino DOCG. The vineyards are situated at 400 meters in elevation southwest of the town of Montalcino. The region’s vineyards are sheltered by Mount Amiata and kept dry by sea breezes from across the hills to the west. Densely planted vineyards produce low average yields, allowing wines with concentration, complexity and considerable aging potential. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature, then the wine is macerated in steel vats before malolactic fermentation takes place. The wine is aged in large Slovenian oak casks and in bottle before release. Wine maker notes The La Fuga estate is situated at an altitude of 1,200 feet in an area of the Montalcino appellation considered to be among the finest. The microclimate is unique in that it yields wines with an exceptional balance between finesse and firm, supple structure. Of the estate's total surface area, half are cultivated. Twenty-five acres are planted to vines and the rest support olive orchards. The vineyards are registered under three separate appellations, with 16. 25 acres classified for Brunello di Montalcino and 4. 37 acres each classified for Rosso di Montalcino and IGT Toscana. The principal vineyard, which covers 11. 25 acres and is entirely under the Brunello designation, is planted to 20 year old Sangiovese vines. The remaining vineyards are more recent, planted between 1993 and 2000. Vines are planted at a density of 1,600 to 2,200 stocks per acre. Maximum potential production is approximately 3,500 cases. The harvest takes place in October when the grapes have reached optimum ripeness. Yield is restricted to at least 6. 5 tons per hectare (2. 6 tons per acre), of which 65 percent produce wine. Selected grapes are vinified in the estate's cellars, with alcoholic fermentation carried out in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at 28°C (79ºF). Maceration on the skins lasts approximately 15 days. The wine is then transferred to large Slavonian oak casks of 30 to 40 hectoliters where a complete malolactic fermentation takes place followed by 36 months aging. A minimum 12 months' bottle aging precedes the wine's release.
