Torre Terza - Brunello di Montalcino 2010
Torre Terza - Brunello di Montalcino 2010 (89 TSW)
The origin of Torre Terza is in San Gimignano. Today the domain has vineyards in San Gimignano, between Montepulciano and Montalcino and even in Umbria. Bruno Baroncini is the winemaker and inherited the domain and the passion of wine making from her father.
I think the winery has currently changed its name to Poggio il Castellare because I can't find much about the winery in the Montalcino area. This 2010 still has the old label with Torre Terza on it.
Poggio Il Castellare has a total of forty hectares of land, of which seven are dedicated to organic vineyards, two to truffle fields, three hectares of wood, rich in medicinal herbs, and the remainder to arable land. At Poggio Il Castellare the protection of biodiversity, an extraordinary and unique wealth of Montalcino, is at home. The estate offers an important glance: on the top of the hill there is in fact an ancient village surrounded all around by a halo of vineyards, “a girapoggio”, as they say in Montalcino.
My tasting notes:
In the glass a dark rub red color with brownish edge.
On the medium(+) nose aromas of ripe plums, dark cerries and raisins with hints of earth, leather and coffee.
On the palate medium(+) bodied with medium acidity and soft tannins. Flavours are a recall of the nose with cherries, dried prune, leather and ceder. The finish has a medium(+) length finish.
