Mauro Brunelli and Anna Savini, owners of the Brunelli Estate, both come from farming families who have always lived in Montalcino. Their families abandoned the cultivation of land at the end of the Sixties to dedicate themselves to other activities, as many locals did. In 1964, the Brunelli family moved to Martoccia a small farm of about three hectares. In 1998, together with Luca, only child of Anna and Mauro, they bought more land where they planted vines.
Currently, the Brunelli Estate covers 15 hectares of land of which five are registered as Brunello di Montalcino D.O.C.G. while olive groves and forest cover the remainder of the property. Their love of the land and respect for tradition daily nourish the enthusiasm of the Brunelli family who live and work in this field.
Long-considered to be the little brother of Brunello, Rosso di Montalcino is, in fact, a wine of great distinction and depth where the distinguishing fruity black cherry and wild berries unite with light sensations of vanilla and spice. First courses with meat sauces, grilled dishes, roasts and medium-aged cheeses bring out the best in its deep and balanced flavor.
