Mate Famiglia Description

The Máté family wine estate nestles on two private hills on the sea-breeze ventilated side of Montalcino. A Roman vineyard 2,000 years ago, the seven campi of marvelously varied terroir totaling 7 hectares are surrounded by Mediterranean woods, herbs and wild fruit. The vineyards were designed by Fabrizio Moltard, Angelo Gaja’s agronomist, and the clones chosen by France’s Pierre Guillaume.

The grapes: Sangiovese (in fossil-filled tufo) are planted to keep the yields extremely low by three annual green prunings to concentrate flavors and profumes.

Selected, hand-picked at fullest maturity and fermented in small temperature controlled stainless steel vats or new wooden barrels, the grapes are punched down by hand to extract colors and tannins, while the must is kept cool to maintain the  rich aromas of fruits and spices. The wines are aged for up to two years and a half in Allier French oak barriques and tonneaux.

Tasting notes - 

The Mate Famiglia Brunello di Montalcino is youthful and tight when first opened. As it opens, dark red fruits emerge - ripe raspberry and dark bing cherry wrapped in a cloak of savoury herbs - lavender and sandalwood and sweet spice. A firm oak component, with judicious tannins. This is a juicy mouthful of wine. An hour in the decanter would greatly benefit this Brunello.
