"The 2016 Brunello di monalcino Amantis is a wine that capture your imagination; and no matter how
youthfully tense they are today, you simply can’t help but revisit a
glass over and over again; because in many cases, the aromatics alone
are intoxicating" Vinos.
On the nose, rich black fruits and spices dominate with floral undertones and hints of caramel. On the palate, it hints of rich dark cherries, tart raspberries, with slight baking spices, balanced by soft yet firm tannins.
Filling of the oak casks entirely by gravity flow.
Maceration with submerged cap for 5 weeks
Aging In French oak casks for 30 months, Refining in bottle for a minimum of 12 months.
The 2016 vintage is exceptional. It pairs exceptionally well with most meat-based dishes including lamb, venison, veal, beef, salumi, bolognese, ragus as well as a perfect addition to any collection.
"Aromas of ripe black-skinned fruit, menthol, leather and oak-driven
spice lead the nose. Mirroring the aromas, the lithe, linear palate
offers Marasca cherry, coffee bean and licorice. It's already
accessible, with polished tannins. Drink through 2028". Kerin Okeefe
