97The Wine Advocate

A Brunello of profound beauty, intensity and complexity... fruit focused on cherry and blackberry... secondary aromas from the oak that recall spice, cinnamon and dark smoke... Endnotes of spice, cured meat and barbecue smoke

94Wine Spectator

This is packed with sweet cherry, plum and mulberry fruit, accented by licorice, leather and spice notes. Shows grip and character, with a mouthwatering finish.

94James Suckling

A red with lots of dried berry, dried tomato and mineral character on the nose. Full body very chewy and structured. A dense and chewy wine that needs time to soften. Big and powerful.

92Vinous / IWC

Smoke, tobacco, cedar and roasted coffee beans wrap around a core of juicy dark cherries and plums... There is plenty of depth in the glass... Powerful, incisive tannins support the finish.


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.
