Brunello di Montalcino, Col di Lamo

LAMO020
"This is a very pretty Brunello that shows fresh red cherries, strawberries, citrus, nutmeg, rose petals and cedar. Great combination of finesse and concentration. Silky tannins and chewy fruit are a winner. Full-bodied and powerful, yet agile. 95/100", James Suckling,

Azienda Agricola Col di Lamo

The commercial farm Col di Lamo extends up to eight hectares in the territory of Montalcino. The property owner, Giovanna Neri, graduated in Law, got her passion for wine from her father and she is actually one of the most successful and valued winemakers.

Tasting Notes

A perfumed bouquet, there is great brooding intensity and smouldering power. The palate is sumptuous, round and creamy with a sophisticated prune and blackberry fruit structure, delicate nuanced oak ageing and perfectly poised tannins. Quite outstanding.

Vinification

Manual selection of clusters picked up in perforated cases which are delicately emptied in the hopper of the destemmed machine. Stuck fermentation takes place without the addition of cultured yeasts, with long maceration of the pomace at a controlled temperature and with recurring processes of scalar pumping over. At the end of the malolactic fermentation wine is poured into wine barrels and wood casks for a minimum period of two years. Wine is then put into stainless steel tanks and finally bottled. The final stage is to give the wine additional aging (6 months), before bottling.
