Se specifikation


Brunello di Montalcino is surely one of the most well-known and treasured wines in the world. It is a red wine of extraordinary elegance and concentration obtained from a long ageing process.

It has a full and ethereal fragrance with hints of wild berries, black cherry and vanilla.

Ageing: 42 months, a part in Slovenian oak barrels and a part in French oak barriques.

Food suggestions: First courses, game with meat sauces, grilled dishes, roasts and medium-aged cheeses bring out the best in its deep and balance.

Robert Parker: I am impressed
I am impressed by this wine from Martoccia, a producer I was not previously familiar with. The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva opens to black fruit aromas with plum, blackberry and dried cherry. Perhaps the tannins are a bit dry (you feel that on the palate), otherwise this pretty wine has the natural acidity and freshness to pair with grilled sirloin or lamb. Only 5,000 bottles were made.

The Martoccia story is a story of passion and love

Passion for wine and land, love for tradition. For two generations, we try to express these values, together with care and seriousness, in what we produce.

The Cellar

In this welcoming cellar, expertly crafted by Luca and Mauro Brunelli, the youngest red wine to the most prestigious Brunello are stored.
Here oak barrels and barriques give unmistakable aromas and enveloping fragrances to each wine.

The Brunelli family follows every phase of its production from the vinification to the ageing process with great passion, a guarantee of its quality and authenticity.

From selected grapes...
Our quality wines

Our most important vineyards extend over the southwest side of Montalcino at an altitude of about 250 meters. From this location, they are exposed to the sun for the entire length of the day and are likewise protected from the cold northern winds. At this average altitude, the grapes acquire the maximum expression of their fragrance and ripening. The land, rich in stone, guarantees excellent permeability and consequent drainage of rainwater. 

Other smaller vineyards are located in the north / north east side of Montalcino, with very different characteristics. A greater presence of water in medium-textured soils, with some clay, northerly winds, slightly cooler microclimate, which helps us in hot vintages to preserve the freshness of the grapes.

Each hectare holds about 5000 buds from the best Sangiovese stems using cultivation techniques which favor low yields, far below the 80 hundred kilograms expected by production specifications: a difficult but effective choice in order to obtain a great wine.
