Description

Details of wine

Brunello di Montalcino Cupano was born in the winery of the same name founded in the 70s by a director of French cinematographic photography Lionel Cousin who, seduced by the Tuscan lands, decided to leave everything and together with his wife Ornella start his adventure in wine.

From France it brings with it some typical principles of the Burgundy wine tradition, a few hectares of land, low yields of the vineyards and the use of biodynamic-biological methods which combined with the territorial characteristics of these areas have made it possible to create extraordinary wines.

Brunello 2008 is an organic made with 100% Sangiovese, a wine that leaves the traditional routine managing to reach excellent quality levels.

A complex and elegant Brunello, which ages more than 4 years in barrique and in which we find all the passion of this cellar.

A Brunello that cannot miss in the cellar of the amateurs of this wine.

Our farm is on the hills south of Siena, Etruscan land, one of the most beautiful landscape in the world, Heritage of Unesco, where nature and millenary art melt in exquisite harmony. We live on a stony hill above the Ombrone river with good drainage, high mineral content and a wonderful view. Year after year we have confirmation that it is “un vrai, grand terroir”. Our mentor was Henri Jayer from Burgundy with his strong beliefs: few hectares, wine made in the vineyard, no chemical fertilizers or pesticides, limited yields, further selection on the sorting table with removal of any unripe or moldy grapes, autochthonous yeasts, malolactic on the lees in new French barriques. Carlo Ferrini selected the land for the vines and the vine-stocks, the growth system and the height of the vines. François Bouchet initiated us to biodynamic, the simple and efficient biodynamic of the old gentleman farmer he was. And only when Giulio Gambelli, glass in hand, looks at us in silence and gives us the thumbs up, we bottle. Thanks to these masters we hope to succeed in imbuing our wine with a memory, the landscape, a season, the story of our enchantment.
