The Wine

Brunello la Fuga perfectly represents the territory where it is born. In fact, the southwest exposure towards the Tyrrhenian Sea and the soils rich in sediments of the historic area of Camigliano enrich the Sangiovese grapes of Tenuta la Fuga with polyphenols, content of which increases thanks to the long aging in 25hl oak barrels. Its tasting shows a fascinating and engaging character as only Brunello can reveal.
Tasting: The 2018 vintage reveals hints of berries, orange peel, flowers and cedar but also walnut and wet leaves. Full-bodied and juicy on the palate, with firm, velvety tannins. Concentrated flavours and a long finish. Perfect balance between taste and aroma.
Pairing: Our “Villa di Nozzole” suggests to pair the wine with pork stuffed with duck and wild fennel seeds
First vintage: 1996
Shelf life: up to 30 years
Curiosity: Brunello La Fuga has always been aged in 25 hl Italian-made Slavonian oak barrels
