In ancient Rome, "armilla" was a golden bracelet warn by both men and women, although it also refers to a particular bracelet awarded to Roman soldiers for military merit on the field and worn on the left arm. The 4.5-hectare Armilla farm is located south-west of Montalcino in the direction of Grosetto. It was purchased in 1980 by Silverio and Marchetti as a retirement project. The family planted vineyards and built a small winery, and began to produce wines, although initially it could not be called Brunello because it was outside of the DOCG zone at the time. In 1995, the land was included in the Brunello di Montalcino DOCG and the family (daughters Ilaria and Fiorella, and their children Nicola and Giacomo) joined the business. Unfortunately, Silverio died in 1997 before the first bottle was sold; however, the rest of the family has carried on the winery in his memory
Dark black cherry color indicating the ripeness of the vintage. Nose is expressive and big with cherry and notes of licorice and dates. Mouthcoatingly smooth and with more ripe cherry, toast and mineral on the palate. The finish sticks to the teeth and is long. The balance of the fruit, alcohol, oak and acidity work perfectly together to form a finish that easily lasts 45 seconds. The tannins are ripe, but firm.
