• Padelletti 2015 Rosso de Montalcino

This remains a baby Brunello from a quality old school producer. The nose shows earth, tar, dried cherry, eucalyptus, fig and some blue fruits. The palate is moderate in weight with present black cherry flavors, raspberry, tar, crushed rocks, and blueberries. This is a delicious, serious Sangiovese. D&M Tasting Notes

'The Padellettis cramped but functional cellars are still located beneath the family’s sixteenth-century home [in Via Padelletti, to honor the contribution to the town by earlier generations of the family] in the town center, where fermentation is carried out in glass-lined cement tanks and aging takes place in - you guessed it - 30-hectoliter Slavonian botti for two years, and one in 30-hectoliter botti of French wood, the firm’s only break with rigid tradition.’

The Padelletti estate consists of 4 hectares of vineyards cultivated organically. The vines are all in one plot, called Rigaccini Secondo, located to the north of the town of Montalcino, at 430 meters above sea level (relatively high for the appellation). The soil here is medium-textured loam, rich in sandstone and alberese limestone with some galestro marl. They harvest manually, normally at some point between the 21st of September and the 20th of October, taking great care to choose only the best grapes in the vineyard to ensure wine quality. The average age of the vines is 15 years for the Rosso, 30-35 years for the Brunello and 40-50 years for the Riserva. The wines are made entirely of Sangiovese, and estate-bottled. Importer Notes
