Martoccia di Brunelli Luca
The Brunelli Estate covers 15ha of land of which 5 are registered as Brunello di Montalcino DOCG. Mauro Brunelli and Anna Savini, owners of the Brunelli Estate, both come from farming families who have always lived in Montalcino.
The vineyards extend over the southwest side of Montalcino at an altitude of about 250m. From this location, they are exposed to the sun for the entire length of the day and are likewise protected from the cold northern winds. At this average altitude, the grapes acquire the maximum expression of their fragrance and ripening.
The land, rich in stone, guarantees excellent permeability and consequent drainage of rainwater. Each hectare holds about 5000 buds from the best Sangiovese stems using cultivation techniques which favour low yields, far below the DOCG specification.
