Magnum 1,5L SAN BARNABA 2020

Vin Bianco Toscana IGT

It is the alter ego of the estate’s grand vin, echoed by both its name and its label design. Like its elder brother, an all-Sangiovese, Sanbarnaba’s mission is to showcase the quality possibilities of Trebbiano, a grape long a feature of the estate and here given a non-traditional vinification.

CASTELLO di BROLIO SANBARNABA 2020 - Vin Bianco Toscana IGT

It is the alter ego of the estate’s grand vin, echoed by both its name and its label design. Like its elder brother, an all-Sangiovese, Sanbarnaba’s mission is to showcase the quality possibilities of Trebbiano, a grape long a feature of the estate and here given a non-traditional vinification.

Distinctive traits: generous, enfolding, inducing meditation.

Soil: Macigno del Chianti, soil commonly called Arenarie, composed by sands and rocks, well drained and furnished with little organic matter.

Harvest: Grapes have been selected and handpicked on September 25, 2020.

Vinification: Destemmed and softly pressed grapes are vinified with the skins in cocciopesto amphorae, at a controlled temperature of 14°C (57.2°F), for up to three months.

Ageing: 12 months: 40% in amphorae, 30% in stainless steel tanks and the remaining 30% in two and three-year old barriques.

Bottling: December 20, 2021.

Tasting notes

Sanbarnaba will surprise you with its elegance and intensity. A medium-gold colour white wine with floral and fruity aromas, followed by hints of honey, spices and aromatic herbs. Soft in the palate, balanced and with a marked savoury and acid note that enhance its freshness and drinkability up to the long finish.
