98James Suckling

Very floral. Hints of lemon rind. Full body, lots of tightness and polished tannins. Fine-grained. Fresh, long and incredible fruit. Last for minutes. A great wine indeed.

95The Wine Advocate

This Brunello opens to pretty layers of forest berry, blanched almond, grilled rosemary, balsam herb and cassis. The style adopted here is elegant and tight, and shows a high level of complexity.

17+ Jancis Robinson

Compact with hints of oak spicy on the nose. Supple oaked fruit on the palate and really well done and seductive. Quite modernist, yet stylish with great balance and chewy tannins. Wonderful, elegant structure and palate weight.


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.
