93The Wine Advocate

This wine maintains a tight, polished and traditional personality. It plays perfectly into the house style that favors an elegant and less extracted approach. Yet you also sense the extra sunshine and warmth of the vintage in those aromas of wild cherry, plum and crushed flowers.

93James Suckling

Fascinating pumice, dried red cherries and spices here. Fruity and succulent with a level of gravitas to the drying, structured tannins that keep the palate quite taut and firm. Medium-long on the finish.

91Wine Enthusiast

Dark-skinned berry, leather and cooking-spice aromas lift out of the glass. The balanced savory palate offers dried black cherry, tobacco and black pepper alongside fine-grained tannins.


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.
