Brunello is one of my wife’s favorite wines, so she was pretty excited when this press sample showed up last week. Wonderfully silky with that powdery tannic grip that Sangiovese can offer, this is a classic old-school expression of Brunello - with gorgeous cherry, sandalwood, dried herbs and floral high notes. Fantastic acidity brings a dried orange peel quality to the finish and keeps the wine quite fresh as those dried herb notes soar for quite some time. β€” 7 days ago

Valdicava

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2007

With Lamb Chops on Easter Sunday. Crimson with a tawny rim. Aromas of menthol and freshly turned earth together with McBarens Plumcake Pipe Tobacco - after a while Lavender. On the palate very savoury dry plum, cherry with a touch of licorice and tar. Medium bodied with fine persistent tannins. An excellent Brunello from a good vintage. β€” 8 days ago

Caprili

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2016

This is a serious brunello. Light color and totally closed on open. With patience, it begins to open up over 2 hours. More time would have been rewarded, but hey, I was thirsty. Pretty, wound-up fruit. Nice, nice finish. Really enjoyed this 2016. β€” 4 days ago

Le Chiuse

Riserva Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2001

I fondly recall selling this wine during 2009/2010. Properly stored bottles will drink extremely well through the decade.

Drink: 2021 - 2030
Tasted: Mar 2021
The 2001 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is slightly darker in color yet just as vibrant as the Annata sitting beside it. The Riserva blossoms with autumnal spices, tobacco and florals, giving way to a display of bright strawberry with flowery undergrowth. It’s enveloping and soft upon entry, with stimulating acids and tart red fruits that create a push-and-pull of sweet and sour, coming across as zesty and full of energy. Fresh cherry pits, licorice and inner rose linger over a nuanced layer of tannin. This gorgeous wine of tension is on the verge of peaking, with many, many years of pleasurable drinking in store for us. I can sit with this for hours. Sampled from the winery cellar.”
