Querce Bettina is a family run farm founded in 1992 on the southwest side of Montalcino at around 440 meters above sea-level. In 1999, the owners Sandra Barenghi and Roberto Moretti planted two and a half hectares with precious 100% Sangiovese vines. Their aim was to create out of that land rich in clay and sandy marl, two kinds of wine of excellence: the “Rosso of Montalcino DOC” and the “Brunello of Montalcino DOCG”. Today, after some years, their plan has come true: Querce Bettina signs the “Rosso DOC” and in 2009 has presented and put on sale its first “Brunello DOCG”.
Rosso di Montalcino 2008: Sangiovese Grosso (Brunello). Selected harvesting, fermentation, and vinification in steel until malolactic fermentation is complete. Aging in 500 litre French wood casks (Allier) for 12 months, bottling and bottle aging for 8 months. Generally released beginning in September two years after the vintage. Ruby red in colour, with plenty of red flowers and berries on the nose. Good body, rounded and harmonious, with a long finish. This wine is not filtered, and may thus give rise to slight sediment.
