Brio

  • Castello Romitorio
  • Toscana, Italy

Method & Production

Brio is a wine made predominantly from Sangiovese grapes from estate vineyards on the gentle sloping hills of Scansano, which expresses the freshness of this grape variety. The combination of altitude, south-westerly exposure and rich volcanic soils in Scansano create one of Italy's most unique microclimates. The area, notable for its unspoiled nature and rolling hills, lies approximately 150 meters above sea level and only 20 kilometers from the Tyrrhenian Sea. The wine is aged for several months in large oak casks and bottled approximately six months before release.

Tasting notes

Dense ruby red in color. Fragrant floral aromas, notes of red berries and cherries, and a layer of aromatic herbs. The refined balance of flavors centers on savoriness and soft tannins. This is a medium bodied wine with a long and fruity finish.
