94James Suckling

Decadent, rich red with cherry, smoked-meat and plum aromas that are subtle and enticing. Full body, round and velvety tannins and a flavorful finish...delicious.

93The Wine Advocate

...bouquet shows aromas of wild cherry, balsam herb, rosemary and chewing tobacco. Dusty mineral notes of rusty nail or crushed limestone appear on the finish.

90Wine Spectator

Cherry, raspberry, floral, mineral and tobacco aromas and flavors... Energetic and well-balanced, showing a bit of heat on the powerful finish.

90Wine Enthusiast

Underbrush, cocoa and plum aromas mingle with delicate whiffs of blue flower and grilled herb...palate shows sour cherry, cranberry, sage and espresso alongside bright acidity and rather dusty, drying tannins...light bodied but also has just enough tension.

17+ Jancis Robinson

Concentrated and ripe on the nose with a hint of fruit cake. Supple and generous fruit paired with zesty acidity and coating tannins on the finish. Great focus, concentration and length.


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.
