Our journey continues in the heart of Montalcino, at La Fornace wine estate, tasting the DOCG 2016
With generations of country experience, learning and knowing how to maximize production from the soil, it’s no wonder that the Brunello di Montalcino selections from the La Fornace wine estate are a genuine reflection of the territory’s natural propensity for creating riotously rich grapes.
La Fornace, in the heart of the Montalcino wine region, is a small family-run wine estate specialized in small numbers of top-quality Brunello wines. A relatively new wine estate considering some of the other historic presences in the area, what La Fornace winery is remiss in age, it certainly makes up for in quality Brunello di Montalcino vintages.
The wine-makers of La Fornace relish the attention their hand-harvesting and production lend to their production process, and Fabio Giannetti, the third generation of the Giannetti family focusing on the commercial production of the La Fornace estate wines, pays particular attention to using eco-friendly, biologic wine production techniques.
La Fornace’s Brunello Origini 2016 is a gloriously velvet-like Brunello selection. With an elegant, smooth feel, the deep ruby-red Brunello wine is a call back to the way Brunello di Montalcino wines used to taste and feel.
