Robert Parker: This is a silky wine with light textural fiber and bright accents of red fruit
The Il Palazzone 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva sources its fruit from three vineyard sites and undergoes 36 long months of aging in traditional oak casks. The last time we saw a Riserva from this estate was in 2010, and previous releases include 2001, 2004 and 2006. This is a silky wine with light textural fiber and bright accents of red fruit, cherry, raspberry and blue flower. These results are lithe and graceful. They will speak to those who appreciate the more lightweight side of Brunello.

Vinous: It’s silky and textural
The 2015 Brunello Riserva slowly opens up in the glass, as a dusting of cedar and white smoke evolves to show notes of floral-laced woodland berries and hints of cinnamon and clove. It’s silky and textural, cast across a medium-bodied frame with brisk acids maintaining lift, while a perfumed display of wild strawberry and plum gives way to inner violet inflections. The balance here is really quite nice, tapering off with a twang of minerals, savory herbs and a subtle coating of rounded tannins. The 2015 Riserva won’t require too much time to come fully into focus, but I expect a few years of cellaring will bring forward further depths. Only 2.100 bottles were produced. Drinking window 2022-2030.

Le Due Porte vineyardsResponsible Agriculture
We are currently practising what is known as “agricoltura responsabile.”

 

 

Marco and Massimo make decisionsPrecision viticulture
Every week our consultant agronomer visits the vineyard in order to assess the particular conditions at Il Palazzone. He analyses factors that influence grape yield and quality (soil, topography, microclimate, vine health, etc.) and helps us to make the appropriate choices in the vineyards. Our vineyards vary so much in terms of terroir that we benefit from an individual approach. This way of working ensures that we never do unnecessary treatments.

 

Le Due Porte vineyardsNo chemical pesticides
The few treatments that we make in the vineyard are base metals that are allowed by the EEC directive 2092/91 that governs organic farming. We do not use sophisticated chemical compounds that are damaging to the environment and the ecosystem.

 

Bart cuts back excess foliage: July 2009By hand at any cost
Whenever possible we effect manual operations rather than anti-fungal treatments. For example we will choose to strip away vine-leaves by hand in order to give the bunches as much air as possible after rain in order to avoid grey mould rather than spraying the vines with an anti-botrytis treatment.

Opting for manual work rather than tractor intervention is always more expensive. However, “il vino si fa in vigna” – wine is principally made in the vineyard, not the cellar – and these results of these choices are evident in the final quality of our wines.

 

VineyardCultivating biodiversity
We are trying to reacquire the balance that is lost through the use of chemicals by avoiding them as much as possible and trying to replenish the soil and the ecosystem. You will see flowers, butterflies, ladybirds and earthworms in our vineyard!

 

Cover cropsCover crops : green manure
We have opted for organic fertiliser in the vineyards. Rather than using chemical fertilizers which pollute streams and groundwater, we plant cover crops – nitrogen rich leguminous plants such as lupins and fava beans – in alternate rows. These are then ploughed into the earth, enriching and fertilising the soil. This has the many advantages: it reduces erosion, improves water absorption and increases soil organic matter which enhances soil structure. It can also lead to increased soil carbon sequestration which has been promoted as a mitigation strategy to help offset the rise in atmospheric carbon dioxide levels.

 

Locally sourced chestnut postsVineyard posts
We use locally grown chestnut posts that do not need to be treated with preservatives as supports in the vineyard.
