Brunello was the first wine in Italy to get DOCG status in 1980 .The wines are very different from Tuscany's other famous wine, Chianti, but not so different from Brunello says winemaker Leonardo Sodi – though the soils and microclimate are completely different.Fabio Loda, director of Tenuta L'Impostino, adds that being a Tuscan wine is a double-edged sword when you're not Chianti or Brunello.Loda mentions an additional challenge, which is that most properties have only recently begun to produce quality wine and are small. Some others, while producing excellent wine, might be small – only 3 hectares (such as Amiata) or even 1.5 hectares (Arpagone).Wines must be aged in oak for a minimum of 12 months and four months in bottle (or 24 months in oak and six months in bottle for the Riserva).Tenuta L'Impostino's vermentino IGP 2013 is a clean and well-defined wine with tingling acidity, accented by clay soils.
