Brunello di Montalcino (wood box) - 2019

Cerbaiona's winemaking process is simple. Hand-picked grapes are crushed in a vintage wood-sided press before fermenting in cement tanks. After settling, the Brunello spends at least 4 years in cask and at least 6 months in bottle before being released. Nothing is added (no yeasts, no enzymes) or removed (no fining or filtration).
