Description
 
The Amantis winery is situated on the south side of the Orcia River, which separates Brunello di Montalcino from Montecucco. Amantis’ "Birbanera" Montecucco Rosso packs a lot of ripe fruits, seductive spice aromas and flavors into a delicious bottle. Primarily Sangiovese 60%, the blend is enhanced with a Merlot 22%, Canaiolo 10% from Le Bribe vineyard, and Petit Verdot 5%, which bring body and lush fruit to complement Sangiovese's energy and high tone. The wine is fermented in stainless steel, then aged a few months in 2nd and 3rd passage French barriques. The result is a wine full of rich fruit, soft and supple on the palate, with excellent acidity to balance it out. A full bodied wine that is balanced and silky, Birbanera offers plenty of blueberry aromas, with hints of vanilla, featuring fine tannins and a lightly jammy finish. Outstanding wine for the taste and value.

this wine is full of rich fruit, soft and supple on the palate but still with excellent acidity to balance it out.
