Wine Spectator 92:
"A modern style, yet beautiful in its execution. Black cherry and blackberry flavors are pure and tinged with violet, toast and oak spice notes. A beam of acidity keeps this fresh, lingering with a spice, berry and mineral aftertaste. Best from 2012 through 2020."

After a basically mild winter, in early spring there was too little rain. June, on the contrary, was unusually rainy, with precipitation of 80 mm in the first fifteen days alone. After the first half of the month, the rain ended and the temperatures were summery, within the average for the season and without any particular peaks. The rains began again only halfway through August and then again halfway through September. The Sangiovese was harvested on October 20th. Thanks to the considerable differences of temperatures between day and night during September, the grapes developed exceptional aroma and extractions of colour. The results of the 2008 harvest are truly excellent. The weather during the harvest was fine and dry, and as the grapes arrived at the winery, they were perfectly healthy and mature.

Fermentation temperature
Fermentation lasted 12-18 days on the skins at 24°-27°C.

The wine is matured in barrels and casks for 18 months.

Bottling date
June 15th and 16th, 2010

Tasting notes

Bright and lively ruby.

Enfolding and sweet aromas of cherry, morello cherry, violet and strawberry harmoniously blend with hints of tobacco, vanilla, white chocolate and Mediterranean spices.

The mineral and spicy fruit tone of the Brolio terroir is unmistakable to the nose. An immediate freshness opens to warm, full and rich tactile sensations to the taste. Ripe red fruit and the spices join in a long embrace of finely toasted notes. Elegant, it promises an interesting evolution in the years.
