Wine Wisdoms #34: What’s in a Vintage?

Brunello di Montalcino La Lecciaia All wine, (non-vintage excluded) has a vintage year associated with it. The vintage year is always the year that the grapes were picked, regardless of how long the wine was aged.  For example, a 2001 Brunello may not be bottled and available on store shelves until 2006, due to the time it ages in oak and bottle, but the grapes used to make that Brunello were picked in 2001. Wine can age in oak or stainless steel for months or years, before being bottled.
