Brunello Di Montalcino Riserva Varco Molino Di Sant Antimo

“Varco” is fermented in large oak botti of 50-hectoliter capacity and aged in those vessels for a total of three years, with regular ‘rackings’ (decantation from one vessel to another, which removes sediment and oxygenates the juice) along the way. It then undergoes further aging in tank and bottle before release into the market!  Although it is still a young wine, you can taste and feel Varco starting to knit together:

In the glass,Brunello Di Montalcino Riserva Varco, it’s a deep, reflective dark garnet red moving to light garnet and orange at the rim, with a quintessential Sangiovese nose of ripe black cherry, crushed blackberries, orange rind, forest floor, cedar, tobacco leaf, leather, warm spices, and a subtle, lingering smokiness that is a varietal hallmark. Nearly full-bodied and showing off quite fine-grained (yet firm) tannins, this has both power and focus on the palate—a rich wave of dark, wild-berry fruit framed by mineral savor, a touch of oak spice, and an enlivening jolt of Sangiovese acidity.

It falls in that elusive “drinkable now but seriously age-worthy” category that many of the world’s greatest reds manage to occupy: Decant a bottle or two soon, about an hour before serving, and enjoy it slowly, then try to keep your hands off the rest for a few years.

Brunello Di Montalcino Riserva Varco Molino Di Sant Antimo

Il Molino di Sant Antimo takes its name from a 13th-century water mill near Castelnuovo dell’Abate. The Owner Carlo Vittori first acquired the estate in the 1980s and planting vineyards on about 20 of the property’s 40 hectares, with the remainder comprised of olive groves and Mediterranean bush.

The property is tucked in the southeast corner of the delimited Montalcino DOCG area. “Varco” is the name of Vittori’s oldest single vineyard, which sits at an elevation of 200-250 meters and faces southwest, with soils comprised mainly of the soil type referred to locally as galestro—a rocky, friable schist found throughout Montalcino.

About The Producer, Molino Di Sant’ Antimo

Molino di Sant’Antimo is made up of about 40 hectares that extend on land exposed to the south / south-west and that decline from 250 to 200 meters above sea level up to the river Orcia.  The soils have a composition of shales, galestro and crushed stone, rich in mineral salts. Vineyard plants have been gradually developed over the years. The modern Cellar, located in a niche of the facing wood, allows in its 800 square meters to vinify the production of the Company in abundant spaces and rationalized to the purpose. In the vinification area there are the modern steel vats for 1.000 Ql. The area reserved for aging houses the large French oak barrels of Allier and the French and American oak barrels. The labels, differentiating themselves in the colors, all bear the Logo Paolus.
