94The Wine Advocate

Freshly cut roses, sweet red berries, mint and licorice are some of the many notes that flesh out in the glass. Firm tannins provide the backbone to the fruit....impresses for its freshness, vibrancy and fabulous overall balance.

92Wine Spectator

This has good acidity, offsetting sweet, ripe cherry, raspberry and tobacco flavors. Fresh and concentrated, with fine balance and a finish of cherry, spice and earth.

92+ Vinous / IWC

High-pitched aromas of cherry, rose petal, licorice and herbs, along with a whiff of leather. Dense, smooth and penetrating, with lovely floral energy and lift, not to mention sneaky sweetness, to the red cherry flavor.


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.
