Even die-hard Piedmont fans who normally never set foot in Tuscany will make an exception for La Torre Brunello. Yes, it is very Brunello-like, with its power, even lushness, and its inimitable Tuscan flavors of leather, rosemary and wild cherries. But it also possesses so much of what lovers of more northerly wines crave: energy, freshness and finesse. This is thanks to altitude. Located in the village of Sesti at around 1500 feet, La Torre produces some of the freshest high-altitude Sangiovese in the DOC.

"Aromas of underbrush, leather and baked plum slowly emerge from the glass on this medium-bodied red. The no-frills, accessible palate offers sour cherry, tobacco and sage alongside smooth tannins." -Kerin O'Keefe

What importer Rosenthal Wine Merchant has to say about this wine...

The Brunello di Montalcino: is fermented in stainless steel for three weeks. It is then racked into large barrels (“botte” made by Gargalotto and of Slavonian origin) and left to age in cask for forty-two months. A small part of the wine (approximately 17%) destined for Brunello status spends 12 months in small barrel. The wine for the Brunello is selected from the oldest vines and the most well-positioned vineyards. Annual production of Brunello is approximately 1,000 cases. In the finest of vintages, La Torre will produce a limited amount of Brunello di Montalcino Riserva which will age for 48 months prior to bottling.
