Brunello di Montalcino Riserva by Lisini grows in the estates between the municipalities of Sesta and Sant'Angelo in Colle which host the spectacular rows of Sangiovese that are cared for by the Lisini - Clementi family since 1846. The strategic position of the vineyards exposed to sea currents of the Maremma, they provide a very special microclimate ideal for the growth of Sangiovese. This Reserve is a great excellence with a classic and traditional style. Winking color, enveloping aromas of cocoa, leather and noble woods, a warm taste with notes of black cherry and ripe cherry, full and a little austere tannin which makes it perfect in combination with roast meat and lamb dishes.
It is very difficult to fix the date of birth of Azienda Agricola Lisini, in fact it must date back to the sixteenth century to find the first traces of it in the family documents. Since then, throughout several generations, the business and ownership of the company have been handed down from father to son, with the sole exception, at the end of the 19th century, of Alessandro Lisini who does not dedicate his life to agriculture, but to study and politics. His son Lodovico, on the other hand, does not follow in his father's footsteps and returns to nature giving new impetus to the production of Brunello.
The throbbing heart of the company, wineries and offices, is located 8 kilometers from the center of Montalcino, in the Sant’Angelo in Colle district. The ancient farm, where the company is based, is surrounded by 154 hectares of land, 20 of which are covered with vineyards; the eocene soil, fresh and porous, the fresh sea breezes, which through the nearby maremma come to make the climate mild, the absolute absence of fog create the ideal environmental conditions for the production of Sangiovese Grosso, the only vine present in the vineyards, which gives us this wonderful wine that is the Brunello di Montalcino signed Lisini.
