Delivery Details

Gaja Pieve Santa Restituta Brunello di Montalcino 2012 is an expressive, complex wine that has effortlessly hit its 10-year mark and will continue to drink well for years to come. The wine is very full-bodied and powerful, with the tannins still present but now integrated seamlessly. The wine offers up a complex mélange of dried plum, tobacco, fennel seed, forest floor and truffle characteristics.

Pieve Santa Restituta, named after a 4th-century church located on the estate. Having made his fame in Piedmont making world-class wines that thumb their nose at the traditional rules of Barolo and Barbaresco, Angelo Gaja made his first forays into Tuscany in the 1990s, buying up two estates, one of which was Pieve Santa Restituta in Montalcino. In contrast to his approach in Piedmont, Angelo decided to stay within the rules of the appellation, albeit pursuing their fondness for smaller oak barriques rather than the traditional large botti. After investing heavily in a state-of-the-art winery (as well as restoring the church), this is a winery that is now producing immense wines that should not be missed.

2012 was deemed a five-star vintage by the Consorzio Brunello. A drought year was mitigated by earlier winter snowfall that effectively boosted water reserves. Warm days and cool nights in September meant slow ripening and welcome retention of acidity in the grapes. Due to the lack of water, the vines yielded a small crop of small berries that had thick skins, resulting in very concentrated wines.
Forest floor, old leather, tobacco, truffle and fennel seed with the faintest memory of strawberry jam predominate in what is now a noble wine entering its mature phase.
Game dishes, mushrooms or foods flavoured with truffle.
