93Stephen Tanzer

Sweet, vibrant and taut; in fact, a bit youthfully imploded, with terrific pinot-like lift and minerality to its flavors of cherry, cola, flowers, leather and earth. At once sappy and elegant. Finishes very long, with noble tannins.

93James Suckling

Full bodied, with velvety tannins and lots of ripe fruit. Long and beautiful. Succulent.

92+ The Wine Advocate

This shows more of the rustic side of Sangiovese in its hearty personality, but there is more than enough substance in the fruit to balance some of the wine’s edgier qualities.

91Wine Spectator

Delivers a mix of cherry, raspberry and cocoa aromas and flavors, picking up spice and tobacco elements on the finish.

17Jancis Robinson

Open and evolved and flattering and sweet. So rich! But not tarty nor heavy. Lovely wine.


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.
