Gassås Wine: Silkeslena och eleganta
Il Palazzone Brunello är rubinröd. Doften är intensiv av mörk frukt och bär, choklad, kaffe, läder, lakrits och balsamico. Vinerna är silkeslena och eleganta, kraftfulla men balanserade och kännetecknas av söta tanniner. Il Palazzone Brunellos är snyggt balanserade och buketten upplevs skönt i munnen och i finishen

Vinous: Very nice
A dusting of exotic spice, incense, sage, dried roses, black cherries and currants can all be found in the bouquet of the 2016 Brunello di Montalcino. It’s silky in feel with a density of primary fruit mixed with stimulating acids and minerality that the young 2016s are becoming known for. Cooling herbal tones and hints of licorice add further depths, as a coating of fine tannin slowly settles in. This is classically structured and full of potential for the cellar, tapering off to purple-tinged inner florals over a hint of sour citrus and savory spice. Very nice.

James Suckling: Very pretty aromas and flavors of sweet berries
Very pretty aromas and flavors of sweet berries and cherries with hints of mushrooms and bark, following through to a medium to full body with linear, tight tannins that flow through the palate. Try after 2023.

Robert Parker: This is a silky and medium-bodied red with lots of lifted energy
Il Palazzone's 2016 Brunello di Montalcino unfolds to light and crisp fruit with lots of wild cherry, rose and blue flower. This is a silky and medium-bodied red with lots of lifted energy and zest. This is a very lively wine. That lighter approach gives this wine a more immediate and accessible approach, and it would pair well with pork or lamb chops. It represents a blend of fruit from three vineyard sites. Production is exactly 12,692 bottles.

Il Palazzone Brunello is intense ruby red with deep garnet hues. The bouquet is intense and ethereal with aromas ranging from dark fruit and berries to chocolate, coffee, leather, liquorice and balsamic notes. The wines are silky and elegant, potent yet balanced and characterised by sweet tannins. Il Palazzone Brunellos are beautifully balanced with all the promise of their bouquet fulfilled in the mouth and finish.

ALCOHOL / VOL. 13.5%
TOTAL PRODUCTION: 8-12.000 bottles, depending on vintage
FIRST VINTAGE: 1990

GRAPES: Il Palazzone Brunello di Montalcino DOCG is produced with 100% Sangiovese Grosso grapes from our own property in Montalcino.

VINEYARDS: The estate has three separate vineyards in quite different areas of Montalcino.

GROWTH SYSTEM: Balanced single spur cordon

YIELD PER HECTARE: Generally less than 5.000 kg. grapes, much lower than the maximum yield permitted for DOCG production.

HARVEST: Usually the first week of October. The grapes are picked by hand using small crates.

VINIFICATION: Long maceration in contact with the marcs with frequent pumpovers. Maximum temperature 28 – 30° C

AGING: Traditional aging times are respected. Il Palazzone Brunello often spends nearly four years in wood. Current DOCG regulations specify a minimum of only two years. We use large Slavonian oak barrels.

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.
