Varietal: Sangiovese

 

La Torre's Brunello di Montalcino reveals the finesse, elegance, and balance that is too often lost in this renowned appellation. With Sangiovese's delicate notes of cherry tied to grilled herbs, supported by refreshingly high acidity and balanced tannins, this wine will please at the table today or after years in the cellar.

 

The Anania family originally comes from Calabria in the south of Italy where they farmed for many years producing fine “bufala mozzarella” among other agricultural products. Giuseppe Anania, the father of Luigi Anania, the present owner and producer of the wines of La Torre, purchased the La Torre property in 1976. The estate is located in the commune of La Sesta, approximately 8 kilometers south of Montalcino in the highest altitude section of the Brunello appellation, quite near to the lovely village of San Angelo in Colle. The first vintage at La Torre was the fabled 1982 which set a fine precedent for the future work.

 

The estate comprises 36 hectares of which 5.6 hectares are devoted to the vine. The vineyards are planted almost entirely to the Sangiovese Grosso grape and have a full southern and southwestern exposure. Small parcels of Ciliegiolo and Alicante complete the mix of grape varieties. Wines from three appellations are produced: Brunello di Montalcino, Rosso di Montalcino, and Rosso di Toscano and Rosso di Toscano “Ampelio”.
