Description

La Fuga is in the region of Montalcino, whose borders delineate the zone of Brunello di Montalcino DOCG. The vineyards are situated at 4304 feet in elevation southwest of the town of Montalcino. The region’s vineyards are sheltered by Mount Amiata and kept dry by sea breezes from across the hills to the west. Densely planted vineyards produce low average yields, allowing wines with concentration, complexity and considerable aging potential. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature, then the wine is macerated in steel vats before malolactic fermentation takes place. The wine is aged in large Slavonian oak casks and in bottle before release.

This wine can be consumed early.  But as with most Brunello, it has significant ageing potential. 

James Suckling 92 Points

Lots of ripe-cherry and sandalwood aromas with hints of fresh spices. Medium body, round tannins and a savory finish. Plummy. Drink or hold.
