The Brunello di Montalcino Cielo d'Ulisse produced by Podere Le Ripi is part of the great Tuscan classics, those timeless wines that must never be missing in the cellar of a connoisseur.
We are in the home of Sangiovese, Montalcino, where Francesco Illy fell in love with this farm and bought it in 1984 from a Sardinian shepherd to relaunch it nationally and internationally.
The vineyards are cultivated following the principles of biodynamics and one of the most innovative elements inserted by Francesco Illy was to create high density soils, so as to create the densest vineyard in the world today called Toscana IGT "bonsai".
Brunello Cielo d'Ulisse is a powerful red, made with the classic, hand-picked Sangiovese, macerated and fermented in steel and then refined for 36 months in wooden barrels.
A wine to rest in the cellar, with elegant tannins, which will remain etched in memory. One of those bottles that never betrays.
