Wine Profile
Wine Profile / Tasting Notes
The 2013 was particularly fortunate for Brunello wines produced in the southern part of the appellation, and Il Bosco di Grazia is among those. Delicate aromas of underbrush, tilled soil and dark fruit emerge from the glass. The juicy straightforward palate evokes blackberry, clove and white pepper alongside polished tannins. Notes of leather and tobacco add complexity to the wine making it a perfect companion for important main courses, but also a fantastic meditation wine.
Vineyard Notes
Vineyard location: South-west Montalcino. Soil type: rich well draining sandy with good presence of calcium. Altitude: 300 meters above sea level.
Production Notes
This wine originates from the best Sangiovese grapes produced on 5.5 Ha on the estate. After the harvest the grapes go through fermentation in temperature-controlled (<32° C) steel vats for 12 days, maceration 30 days. Aged for 36 months minimum in medium Slavonian oak barrels from which the wine acquires its fragrances and that elegance expressed in the glass. After aging in wood, the wine is bottled and refined for a minimum of 12 months then released on the market not earlier than 5 years after the harvest.
Winemaker Notes
Il Bosco di Grazia is a small family-run farm, managed by sisters Elisabetta and Giulia Rubegni, and their mother Maria Grazia. Grazia means “grace” in Italian and the winery name, Il Bosco di Grazia, translates to Grazia’s Forest. The name celebrates Mamma Grazia and the graceful wooded land bordering the vineyard.
Food & Wine Pairing
Pairs exceptionally well with red meats, grilled or stewed, game and mature cheese. Serve at 16°–18°c / 60°–64° F.  Ages well, please store properly.
Aging
Aged in Slovanian Oak barrels for 30 months before final aging period in the bottle for an additional six months.
