RATINGS

95James Suckling

...beautiful mushrooms, bark, dark fruit and spices. Full body, velvety tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Wonderful.

93The Wine Advocate

Blackberry and dark cherry nuances segue to spice, leather and tobacco...bouquet makes these jumps with effortless transitions and it builds important momentum that adds to the wine's length and persistence.

93+ Vinous / IWC

Big, strapping tannins provide the framework for a wine endowed with considerable depth. Dark cherry, plum, menthol, incense, earthiness and savory herbs...

93Wine Enthusiast

Sunbaked soil, mature plum, vanilla and a balsamic note of menthol lead the nose...ripe, velvety palate doles out juicy black cherry, crushed raspberry, mocha and baking spice alongside hearty but polished tannins.

REGION

Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino

Brunello di Montalcino is regarded as one of Italy’s best appellations. Located in south central Tuscany below Chianti, the wines of Brunello di Montalcino DOCG are made of a Sangiovese clone called “brunello,” which means “little dark one,” a reference to the brown tones in the skin of the grape. Unlike some Tuscan appellations that allow other grapes to be blended with Sangiovese, Brunello di Montalcino is entirely Sangiovese. Montalcino itself is a picturesque, hill-top town not especially well known for wine production until the mid-19th century, when a local vineyard owner isolated the brunello clone and planted it. Other growers followed suit. Nevertheless it wasn’t until 1970s that wine enthusiasts started paying attention to Brunello di Montalcino, which by then was becoming an outstanding wine. Today there are 120 estates in the DOCG, up from about 25 estates in 1975. Brunellos in general are bigger, darker, more tannic and more powerful wines than Chiantis or most other Sangioveses. By law they must be aged for four years, and two of those years must be in wooden barrels.
