Armilla is the story of a promise. In 1980, after many years of effort, Silverio Marchetti and his wife Ofelia bought 4.5 Ha of a land and an abandoned house in Tavernelle, a lovely village situated 7 Km from Montalcino. Step by step, they slowly planted the first hectare of vineyard, then built the small winery and so began the adventure. Ultimately 3 generations were working there. For them, Armilla and its wine are a promise maintained to the man who created them and the “armilla” is the symbol of continuity: from Silverio to Ofelia, from Silverio to his daughters, from Silverio to his grandchildren.
This Brunello is made in a light classic style. It shows smooth tannins , medium body, tense acidity,and is clean and elegant. Deep flavors of tart cherry, cedar, leather, earth, smoke, dried sage and clove flavors are present on the palate. The finish is long with light baking spice notes. Pair with tasty meat dishes with mushrooms or truffles or lasagna.
