Tenuta di Castelgiocondo

Brunello di Montalcino 2016

After 8 years Buca di S. Antonio doesn’t disappoint.
The Brunello was outstanding, from a great vintage. Paired wonderfully with the pasta bolognese and veal loin. The waiter also poured a 2017 to compare. The 2016 is better and enjoyable now. A delicious dinner at a amazing restaurant.

Val di Suga (Angelini)

Spuntali Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2015

Nice Brunello but not really singing at this point in its evolution. Also bearing some characteristics of the ripe / hot year, though to be honest less than I feared. Opened in the morning and by dinner was drinking well, at least when paired with some nice prime burgers. — 8 days ago

Marchesi de' Frescobaldi

Castel Giocondo Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Sangiovese 1995

Recent acquisition from my Italy trip. Excellent Brunello - typical licorice, cedar and black cherry notes I love in this style of wine with the body and acidity to bring it all together. Damn I wish I had more of these. — 2 days ago

P. 56 Brunello Di Montalcino 2015

2015 vintage. Chock full of kapow, blap, sok, thunk and whamm. Some top-layer richness to mitigate the lower level tannins/musculature. Not too shabby now but 3-5 years will do wonders. — 24 days ago

Azienda Agricola Cordella

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2015

Definitely much better after a day of opening up. Little harsh at first blush but mellows into some chewy fig and light cooked fruit flavors. Round finish and the nose a bit like green persimmons or younger unripe fruit which was really different. — 2 days ago

Podere Le Ripi

Lupie Sirene Riserva Brunello di Montalcino 2016

Never had wine from this producer before. Quite wonderful. At this stage of age needs about 30 mins for some oak to blow off, but then it’s quite in balance with with wonderful fruit, solid acid, nice long finish, and great mouthfeel and texture. Quite delicious. — a month ago
