Description

One of Italy's (and the world's) greatest wines, Brunello di Montalcino is a small wine region in southern central Tuscany, producing particularly impressive wines from the Brunello grape – a local strain of Sangiovese. In Tuscany, its homeland, it perhaps ranks alongside Chianti Classico. On global markets, it seems to command even greater attention.

Sangiovese has been grown in central Italy for generations, though recent grapevine research suggests the variety is not as ancient as once thought. The quality of Sangiovese wine can be notoriously variable. But, in the 1980s, drastically improved winemaking techniques saw a significant shift toward more quality-oriented releases.

Tasting note: "Intact and with a decisive character showing notes of black prunes, chinotto, black tea leaves and cardamom. Medium to full bodied, light tannins of good workmanship and a luminous finale that will continue to lengthen over time. Better from 2022."
