Brunello di Montalcino, Vino dei Poeti, Bottega, 2014

Veneto, Italy

Brunello di Montalcino is the most prestigious Italian wine, well-known all over the world. Exclusively made with Sangiovese grapes it is intense and full-bodied. These are picked in the Montalcino area from the end of September to mid October. The juice is fermented along with the grape skins from two to three weeks in stainless steel tanks and then aged for 4 years, of which 2 and a half are in oak barrels. Bottega's Brunello is robust, savoury and velvety with a nose of red fruit, vanilla and spices.

Gold Medal Winner: Gilbert & Gaillard 92/100 (2011 vintage) Beautiful deep colour with amber highlights. Racy nose of mild spices, coffee and herbs with Havana wood in the background. Velvety, robust, powerful palate that is nice and lively and reveals great aromatic drive and structure. Beautiful.

"A lifted, heady nose of black cherry and spicy oak flows onto a firm and juicy palate, with elegant herbal, bitter cherry notes. Attractive, if at present a little dominated by the oak. 90 points, drink 2020-27" Decanter Magazine Brunello Panel Tasting Nov 2017. (2012 vintage)

Bottega

Rosina Zambon was a strong-willed and enterprising lady, she was born in Arborea in Sardinia, the daughter of Venetian immigrants who had settled on the island in the 1930's following the land reclamation projects of the Fascist era. In the 1960's, the family returned to the Veneto region and Rosina started to work for a distillery in the Conegliano area. Here she met Aldo Bottega who became her husband. Together with a business partner, in 1967 they started their entrepreneurial adventure by taking over Distilleria Sartor. Ten years later, in 1977, they founded Distilleria Bottega, giving their name to a business that absorbed them both completely.

In 1983 after the premature death of her husband, Rosina found herself at a crossroads, but she did not lose heart. With courage and hard work, together with her 19-year-old son Sandro, she decided to keep on down the same road, albeit littered with difficulties. Very soon, her younger children Barbara and Stefano also became an integral part of what at the time was a small, family-run firm. All of them together, over the years, have contributed to the firm's constant and progressive growth, transforming Distilleria Bottega into a sturdy business of outstanding quality and innovation.

With the Alexander and Bottega brands, Rosina Zambon Bottega, known to most as Rosy, helped introduce grappa to variouscelebrities around the world to help build trends and influence consumer habits. This has worked very well for the business and their products are now known globally for their distinctive presentation and top reputation.
